The Selectboard is Thetford’s legislative and executive body. In a small town like Thetford (one without a town manager) the group of five elected officials supervises the non-elected employees, sets the budget, passes local ordinances and generally represents the town. Each year, the Selectboard divvies up certain responsibilities so that individual board members can focus on specific areas. In general our town staff is most useful for specific day-to-day issues, such as a problem with the roads, permits and the like. The Selectboard is most useful for policy issues and problems with how things are run. If you’d like to comment or ask questions on any one town-related topic, you can consult this list (below) of members and their various “liaison” assignments. That might get you to the most relevant Selectboard member, but also remember that we all are eager to hear from folks on any issue, and if you’re more comfortable talking to a Selectboard member you know, that’s great too. Our general email address, which goes to all of us, is Contact information for each member is listed below the assignments table. Also, we welcome people to come and comment or ask questions at the beginning of our meetings, each Monday night at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
