Each January, the Town Events Committee shall come before the Board of Selectmen to present a budget with a list of events they would like to hold that fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th). The committee shall not expend any funds that have not been appropriated to them.

The events committee shall consist of 11 members to be appointed by the Board of Selectmen. Five (5) members shall be appointed for an initial term of three (3) years and six (6) members shall be appointed for an initial term of four (4) years. Following the expiration of the initial terms, all members will be appointed for 5 years. The Board of Selectmen shall choose the chairman who will work as a liaison between the committee and First Selectman or his/her designee.

The Events Committee shall follow all recommended safety protocols for events as deemed necessary by the State and/or local police department.
