Role of Roxbury Selectboard and Listers
The Roxbury Selectboard is the legislative and governing body of the town. The Selectboard:
- Warn Town Meetings,
- Propose and adopt the budget submitted to the voters for approval,
- Set the total town property tax rate,
- Authorize town expenditures,
- Enacts and amends ordinances,
- Appoint citizens to various town boards and to fill office vacancies
until the next election,
- Hire, direct, and terminate non-elected town employees.
- Adopt policies to govern conduct, activities, and conditions within the town.
The three members of the Selectboard are elected by the town voters to three-year terms, at the Annual Election on officers held on Town Meeting Day.
The members of the Selectboard, along with the Justices of the Peace, are also members of the Board of Civil Authority.
By law, the Selectboard meetings are open to the public and residents are encouraged to attend. Meeting agendas are posted at the Town Offices, this website, The Post Office, and Steele Hill – East Roxbury.
Minutes of the Selectboard meetings are posted and made available on this website and the Town Clerk’s office. By law, a hard copy of the draft Minutes is available for inspection at the Town Clerk’s office, and are posted to this website within 5 days following the Selectboard meeting.
Minutes posted to this website are for reference only and are retained online for 3 years plus current year. All Selectboard minutes are available at the Town Clerk’s Office.
To obtain an official copy of any Selectboard meeting minutes, contact the Town Clerk’s office at (802) 485-7860, email the Town Clerk, or stop by the Town Clerk’s office during business hours, at 1664 Roxbury Road, Roxbury VT.
The three Listers are elected officials whose terms expire in consecutive years. The Listers determine individual property assessments and create the Grand List on which the tax rate is based.
