BoS Meeting Policies

On April 4 the selectmen adopted the agenda and meeting policies that follow, which require submission of agenda items by Thursdays at 3PM before the Tuesday meetings.

The only change from this draft, to what was adopted, was to charge the Board of Selectmen chair with making the determinations about whether to include any late “emergency” submissions.
