SELECTMEN'S DUTIES
The Board of Selectmen is composed of five members who are elected for three-year terms. 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 issue the warrants for Town Meetings and make recommendations on the warrant articles; initiate legislative policy by inserting articles in Town Meeting Warrants and then implement the votes subsequently adopted. They adopt town policies; review and set fiscal guidelines for the annual operating budget and capital improvements program and make recommendations to Town Meeting on the same. The Selectmen approve the Town Manager’s appointments of members of most official boards and commissions; hold public hearings on important town issues and periodic conferences with agencies under their jurisdiction and with community groups; and oversee traffic issues and traffic rules and regulations.

The Selectmen also serve as the licensing board responsible for issuing and renewing licenses in more than 20 categories, including common victualler, food vendor, liquor, lodging house, open-air parking lot, inflammables, special events and entertainment.
