The Sandisfield Board of Selectmen would like to thank you for visiting our webpage. As stipulated by Massachusetts General Laws, our Board is the executive authority for the Town of Sandisfield. In this capacity we are responsible for calling town elections, town meetings, and publishing the annual town warrant. We are in charge of hiring town counsel, appointing certain town officials and filling unexpected vacancies on elected boards. The Selectmen sign warrants for paying town bills, and grant all local licenses and permits. Just as important, the Board provides leadership in setting policy and strategic direction for Sandisfield and troubleshooting various problems that arise in our community. We encourage the public to attend our meetings, lending their voice to the democratic process as we strive to improve the quality of life in Sandisfield. Anyone interested in bringing an issue to our attention may do so by contacting our administrative assistant Dolores Harasyko via the contact information listed to the left. Please be aware that in order for the selectmen to act on an issue we must follow the guidelines spelled out by the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law.

Meeting Schedule: The Sandisfield Board of Selectmen meet at 7:00pm on the second, third and fourth Monday of each month. On the first Monday of each month the Board of Selectmen hold a work session at 2:30pm. When legal holidays fall on a Monday the Selectmen meet the following day. For specific dates please refer to the Town Calendar.
