About the Board of Selectmen
The Board of Selectmen is comprised of five (5) members elected at large for a three (3) year term. The Board of Selectmen serves as the chief policy-making body and executive board of the Town. They appoint a Town Manager to carry out the day-to-day operations of the Town and appoint members of various standing committees. The Board of Selectmen is responsible for setting guidelines for the preparation of the annual budget and to present the budget to Town Meeting. The Selectmen are also responsible for setting the date and warrant articles for the Town Meeting and any Special Town Meeting.

The Board of Selectmen serves as the licensing board for the Town and issues licenses for liquor sales, automobile dealers, Common Victualler, Auctionners, Fuel Storage Tanks, Second Hand Dealers, as well as Yard Sale Permits.

The Board of Selectmen is required to meet at least twice a month and typically meets every other Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall auditorium, 130 Main Street.
