Board of Selectmen

The Hinsdale Board of Selectmen consists of five elected members, each serving a three-year term. 

A fundamental principle in both the United States Constitution and the New Hampshire Constitution is the separation of powers among different branches of government. In designing municipal government, the New Hampshire legislature has evidently kept separation of powers firmly in mind. In towns, powers are apportioned among the town meeting and a long list of boards and individual officials charged with certain duties. Among boards and officials, the board of selectmen, of course, has unique statutory powers to administer the operations of the town, including authority to "manage the prudential affairs of the town."  (NHMA, 2020)

Under RSA 91-A, (“Right to Know”) all business, except in those situations specifically exempted by statute, must be conducted in a public session with duly posted notice.
