Town Administrator

The Town Administrator works under the direction of the Board of Selectmen and shall serve as the Chief Executive Officer. The Town Administrator performs highly responsible work of a complex nature, requiring the exercise of considerable independent judgment and initiative in providing professional guidance to the Board of Selectmen, department heads, town departments, boards and committees concerning the development, implementation, and administration of policies, goals, regulations, and statuatory requirements related to the administration and operation of the Town. The Town Administrator has direct supervisory responsibility for all department heads reporting to the Board of Selectmen, clerical staff, and several part-time positions and is responsible for coordinating the work and administrative activities of those employees not reporting directly to the Board of Selectmen. Additionally, the Town Administrator oversees and is responsible for planning, administration, personnel management, union negotiations, procurement of services and equipment (serving as the Chief Procurement Officer), and coordination of the daily operation of the Town as delegated by the Board of Selectmen, existing policies, proceedures and bylaws, as well as state and federal law.
