Have You Been Sworn?
TO ALL Elected and Appointed Town Officers and Committee Members: State law provides that all elected and appointed persons acting on behalf of the residents of the town appear before the Town Clerk to be sworn to the faithful performance of their duties before taking any action related to the office that they hold. This includes persons that are re-appointed or re-elected.
Resignations must be made to the Town Clerk before they become effective.
ALL BOARD AND COMMITTEE MEMBERS must become familiar with the Open Meeting Law. Please be reminded that legally posting a meeting requires providing the town clerk with written notice of the meeting at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting date and time.
You may place your own notice on the town bulletin board providing that it contains the date and time of posting and a copy of the notice with the posting information has been provided to the clerk.
If you need an updated copy of the law, or if you have not signed an acknowledgement indicating that you have read and understand the law, please contact the clerk.
