The present Board consists of three Commissioners appointed by the Board of Selectmen. The commissioners serve for a period of three years and may be re-appointed but do not have to be by the Selectmen at their prerogative... Members have extensive engineering, engineering management and accounting experience. In addition, the Selectmen may appoint additional associated members of the Board who lack voting power but are routinely heard by the formal Board members. Board members as well as associated members must have engineering background and\or technical project manager experience. Familiarity with financial management is also desirable since the Board is also involved with the Enterprise Fund, an entity independent of the town fiscal structure. The Enterprise Fund collects all sewer and water related bills and fees.
