Board of Selectmen


The Board of Selectmen understands that the decisions we make today will have a lasting impact on tomorrow. Therefore, each decision that impacts the community must be carefully considered. The Selectmen, town staff, and various commissions, boards and committees are working diligently to enhance the quality of life to our residents and future generations.

The Board of Selectmen reviews policy issues before the town, develop the town budget, and rule on proper use of the town’s resources. The Board also approves bids, labor agreements, bonding authorizations, legal claims, and appointments to Boards and Commissions. Legislative questions are also brought before the Board of Selectmen before going to a Town Meeting.

Please feel free to call us or stop by the Town Hall and let us know how we may be able to assist you.


The Board is elected every two years in November. The Board of Selectmen consists of three people, the First Selectman and two other Selectmen. Vacancies are filled by a majority vote of remaining members for the unexpired portion of their term.

Regular meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of the month. Special Meetings are also held as needed, particularly during budget season. The public is encouraged to attend all Board of Selectmen meetings. Agendas and minutes are available at the Town Hall and on this website.
