Board Of Selectmen        

Board of Selectmen

The Town of Heath Board of Selectmen consists of three (3) members elected for three-year overlapping terms. The Board of Selectmen is the chief executive body of the town and has overall responsibility for the general operations of town government. While most other town boards and offices serve a particular function (e.g. assessors, finance, school, health), the selectmen’s responsibilities are much broader. Their job is often one of sorting out the various positions of different departments and boards to determine the best overall course of action for the town. Among their general powers and duties are:
• play an active and strong role in the financial management of the town
• Adopt policy directives and guidelines
• Enact rules and regulations to implement its policies
• Act as the licensing authority
• Responsible for the efficient and orderly operation of all departments and boards of the town except those under the direction of another elected town entity
• Meet jointly with elected boards of the town for the purpose of sharing information on an annual basis or as needed
• Appoint most employees and members of all multiple-member boards, committees, and commissions except as otherwise provided in the town bylaws or laws relating to municipal finance and taxation
• Prepare the annual proposed operating and capital budgets with input from Finance Committee
• Call Town Meeting and create and post warrants
• Enter into contracts on behalf of the municipality
