Board of Selectmen

The Board of Selectmen is the executive branch of Rockport's government.  The Board sets direction, legislates policies and is the appointing authority for all non-elected officials with the exception of staff reporting to the board of DPW commissioners and elected boards.  The Selectmen call all town meetings and elections, as well as propose budgets.  They are the licensing authority, set certain fees, and create, and/or adopt, basic rules and regulations.  They delegate governmental operations through contract to the Town Administrator and act as overseers of them as city councils do in cities.  The Selectmen also act as the Rockport police commissioners.

The Board of Selectmen is a five-member board duly elected by the citizens of Rockport to serve for three-year terms that are staggered among the members.  The Board meets every other Tuesday night at legally posted public meetings which are generally held in Conference Room A at the Town Hall and televised on Channel 12 of Cable Television the Monday following the Tuesday night meeting.
