Selectman's Office

The Selectmen’s Office is located on the main floor of the Town Hall, across from the Town Clerk’s Office. The First Selectman and Administrative Assistant are available full-time as they oversee the day-to-day operations of the Town Hall, Public Works, Department, general Town governance, and Town events. The Office also manages the hiring process for prospective employees.

Questions and concerns about matters involving Town-owned properties, roads, bridges, trees, drainage, and other matters can be reported to this office.

The Office is responsible for organizing meetings of the full Board of Selectmen. Agendas and minutes for Board of Selectmen meetings are produced here along with the packets of information distributed to the Selectmen. If you wish to deliver a formal correspondence to the Board of Selectmen, you may send it by mail or email.

Requests to rent or reserve space at the Town Hall, Community Center, Fire Safety Complex Hall, and on the Town Green should be directed to the Administrative Assistant. Passport applications and pistol permit applications may also be processed here. Appointments are not required, but we recommend calling ahead. Passport applications are not accepted less than 30 minutes before close of business.

Requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act must be filed with the First Selectman’s Office.

This Office is also responsible for management of the Town website and social media accounts.
