Boards and Committees

If you are interested in filling any vacancies contact the Town Clerk.

Town Board:

The Town’s governing board holds ultimate authority to act on behalf of the Town.
By adopting the annual budget,  it levies town taxes. It adopts and amends the Town’s ordinances. In addition to exercising these broad policy-making responsibilities, the Town Board typically decides numerous separate administrative matters. Thus it may authorize the Town to enter into a contract, buy or sell a parcel of property, award the successful bid on a major purchase or a construction project, or accept the dedication of a street.
