Sharon Selectboard

The Selectboard is at the center of town government in Vermont.  Sharon’s three-member Selectboard is elected by the voters at Town Meeting for staggered terms of three years. The Board rotates chair, vice-chair, and clerk responsibilities on an annual basis commencing in March.

The Selectboard is responsible for the general supervision of town affairs. It has a number of functions including the following: legislative (enacts local ordinances, regulations and policies), and administrative (prepares the budget, oversees all town expenditures, supervises town employees and controls town buildings and property). It also does work that is quasi-judicial–for example, it determines private rights when the town is laying out and reclassifying town highways.
