The new Town Charter has created a Board of License Commissioners, a Finance Committee of the Town Council, which the Council has decided to expand the membership to the public and the Town Manager is creating a Residents' Advisory Committee...

The new Town Charter created a Finance Committee of members of the Town Council. The Town Council decided to appoint five of its own Councilors AND to expand the membership of the Finance Committee to include four members of the public. As required by the Charter, the members of the public on the Finance Committee “shall have a voice but no vote in the Finance Committee’s deliberations.”

            The Finance Committee shall review all annual budgets, supplemental budgets and other appropriations, and financial transfer; the capital inventory and capital improvement program and the infrastructure; the purchase, sale, or leasing of land and/or buildings; and borrowing and debt. The full charge for the Finance Committee, which was adopted by the Town Council on December 17th, can be found on the Town’s website.

            The Town Charter also calls for the Town Manager to create a Residents’ Advisory Committee to assist with evaluation and selection of candidates for appointment. The Town Manager is seeking three individuals of diverse backgrounds to serve on this advisory committee.

Applications are still being sought for the Board of License Commissioners as well. 

If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the Finance, Committee, Residents' Advisory Committee, Board of License Commissioners or other boards and committees, please fill out a Community Activity Form at:
