The Select Board is the legislative body of the Town, and is responsible for the operation of municipal services. The Board has the authority to enact ordinances and regulations as required for the health, safety, and welfare of the residents. The Board approves an annual budget for presentation to the voters at Town Meeting.
Board meetings are held on the first and third Monday of each month at 7:00 P.M. The first Monday meeting is at Martin Memorial Hall; during the spring, summer, and fall, the third Monday meeting rotates between a variety of locations throughout the Town. The agenda for each meeting is finalized on the Thursday immediately preceding the meeting. In addition to the agenda items, the Board provides individuals the opportunity to speak to the Board under 'Comments from Citizens' at the beginning of each meeting. Meetings are recorded by the Springfield Area Public Access [SAPA] (click for schedule) and are broadcast on Adelphia Cable Channel 10 for those individuals who subscribe to local cable television.
