Board of Selectmen

The Board of Selectmen (BOS) serves as the executive board of Town government. The BOS is responsible for setting guidelines for the preparation of the annual budget and for presenting the budget to Town Meeting. The Selectmen set the date and warrant articles for the Town Meeting and any Special Town Meetings, and they compile and distribute the Town Report before Town Meeting.

The BOS is the licensing board for the Town, issuing licenses and permits for liquor sales, automobile dealers and various other commercial activities. The Board of Selectmen coordinates with other Town departments to carry out the day-to-day operations of the Town.

Members of the Board of Selectmen serve on various Town and Regional committees and boards as needed, and appoint citizens to various committees, departments, and commissions. The Board is comprised of three (3) members elected at large for three (3) year terms.
