Board of Selectmen

The Board of Selectmen functions as the Chief Executive body of the Town.  Its five members are elected to three year terms with one or two seats up for election each year.  The Board acts as the chief policy making body of the Town and directly supervises the activities of the Town Manager.  The Town Manager is responsible for supervising the day to day operation of all town departments falling under the direct control of the Board of Selectmen.



The Board of Selectmen typically meet every other Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. Although meetings are usually held in the Memorial Room at Hamilton Town Hall, meetings are currently taking place via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
