Board of Selectmen

Selectmen are a Town’s executive officers.  Voters elect them to the Board of Selectmen.  Hawley has three members.  Selectmen are authorized to call a Town Meeting provided that they have posted a warrant.  In small Towns, the Board of Selectmen — or “Selectboard,” as it is increasingly coming to be called — runs the Town’s operations and supervises its workers.

Note, in Hawley, the Selectboard also serves as the Town’s Board of Health.
