Mission Statement

The Board of Selectmen is an elected body of five (5) members and comprises the Chief Executive Branch of the local government. The mission statement for this Board is as follows:

  • To provide services that promote the health and safety of residents and a high quality of life, while preserving and protecting the natural resources of the Town.
  • To foster high standards of public service and effective cooperation among Town employees by providing a supportive work environment and competitive compensation, by recognizing excellent performance, and being responsive to the needs and interest of Town employees.
  • To continue to provide pro-active support and cooperation in pursuit of high quality education programs and services in the Town.
  • To provide services as economically as possible so that living or doing business in the community remains affordable, while preserving something close to the current balance of reliance on residential and commercial property.
  • To create a sense of community within the Town (to develop the "soul" of the community), while recognizing the "mixed" diverse nature of the community.
  • To support a strong economic base through effective land use planning.
