vacancies

Vacancies are created when a member of a volunteer board or committee chooses not to seek reappointment, if they resign mid-term or if they are removed from service by the Board of Selectmen. Every year the Board of Selectmen reviews the list of committee / board members whose terms are due to expire. These members can seek reappointment if they choose.  However, reappointment is not automatic and anyone who wishes to be considered for a position on a board or committee when a member's  term is due to expire should submit their name for consideration.

The Town maintains a list of current vacancies. In addition, you can see a full list of the Town's Committee / Boards in the Agenda Center. Many Boards & Committees have a webpage that lists members and their length of appointment. If you can't find any information about current members and their length of term on a specific board or committee, please contact the Town Administrator.
