SELECTMEN'S DUTIES

The Board of Selectmen is comprised of five elected residents who are elected for three-year terms.  The Board adopts town policies, review and set fiscal guidelines for the annual operating budget and capital improvements program, determine CDBG money disbursements, issue Town Meeting warrants,  approve the Town Manager’s appointments of most official boards and commissions members, hold public hearings on important town issues, and oversee traffic and parking issues.  The Selectmen appoint a Town Manager, responsible for the daily management of the Town, whose powers are specified in the Town Manager Act.

The Selectmen also serve as the licensing board responsible for issuing and renewing licenses for the following categories: common victualler, food vendor, alcohol, lodging houses/inn keeper, class I and II, second hand dealer, hackney, public entertainment, automatic amusement, and contractor drain layer.  The following permits are also issued by the Selectmen: awning/sign permit, parking permit exceptions, block party, street performer and special events.
