  • § 2650. Additional selectmen and listers

    (a) A town may vote at a special or annual town meeting to elect not more than two additional listers for terms of one year each.

    (b) A town may vote at a special or annual town meeting to elect not more than two additional selectmen for terms of either one or two years each. When the terms of the additional selectmen are to be for two years, the warning for the meeting shall so specify. If two additional selectmen positions are created, they shall be for terms of the same length, but if the terms of the new positions are to be for two years, when the additional selectmen are first elected, one shall be elected for one year and the other selectman for two years. Terms of these additional selectmen shall end on annual meeting days. If the additional selectmen are elected at a special meeting the term of those elected for one year shall expire on the next annual meeting day and those elected for two years shall expire on the second annual meeting day following their election.

    (c) A vote establishing additional selectmen or listers shall remain in effect until the town votes to discontinue the positions at an annual or special meeting duly warned for that purpose. (Added 1977, No. 269 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.)
