What We Do
The Board of Selectmen is the Town's executive body. Three members are elected in odd-numbered years to serve a two-year term, with the First Selectman serving in a full-time, salaried position.
The Selectmen appoint all members of non-elected Boards and Commissions, choosing from candidates recommended to them from the Republican and Democratic Town Committees. They also hire all Town employees, except those employed by the Board of Education and the Police Department. The Selectmen, however, are responsible for the administration and negotiation of labor agreements with the police, paid firefighters, and public works employees.
Appropriation requests from all Town departments are reviewed by the Board of Selectmen and then forwarded with recommendations to the Board of Finance. The Board also acts as the purchasing and contracting agent for the Town, including Board of Education capital expenditures.
Current Term of Office: November 2017 to November 2019
