Administration & Board of Selectmen

Board of Selectmen

The Lancaster Board of Selectmen has three members who are elected to serve three year terms, as defined by Bylaw. The Town Bylaws and General Laws of Massachusetts grant the Selectmen broad powers to govern the Town.

The Selectmen appoint more than 20 boards and committees (permanent and ad hoc). The Selectmen act as the primary policy-making body for a wide variety of issues, which affect the Town's development and provision of services. They recommend the budget to the Annual Town Meeting, approve the reorganization of Town departments; provide oversight for matters in litigation; and act as the licensing authority for a wide variety of licenses and permits. The Selectmen also enact Rules and Regulations for such matters as traffic control, underground wiring and street lighting.

The Board of Selectmen generally meets on the first and third Mondays of the month at 6:00 pm at the Community Center. For information about the Selectmen's summer schedule or meeting information please contact the Board of Selectmen's Office.
