This provides a 5 member legislative body with a professional administrator. The legislative body is styled after the traditional New England form of government with a 5 member Town Council elected at large for 2 year terms. The Town Manager is chosen by the Town Council and serves at their discretion. The Manager is charged with the administrative responsibility of the Town Government.
