The Select Board will study the committee’s recommendation, consider holding public meetings and determine if a Special Town Meeting is warranted.

This committee will be composed of nine diverse members of the community who are willing to invest time to represent and serve the community. There will be one member from each of the following: Safety (fire/rescue), church and school. There also will be two members from non-profit organizations, businesses and the community at large.
