Board of Selectmen

Mission

The Board of Selectmen is the governing body of the Town. Its role, as promulgated by NH RSA 41:8 is to carry out the directives of Town Meeting and to "manage the prudential affairs of the town."

New Hampshire law vests many other duties with the Board of Selectmen. These include managing town roads, buildings & land, overseeing welfare, emergency management, the layout of highways, dealing with hazardous or dilapidated buildings, issuing public health regulations, and enforcing land use regulations.

Board members are elected to three-year terms. Hampton Falls residents may sign up to run for the Board during the month of January.

The Selectmen's regular monthly meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday (at 6:30 p.m.) and third Wednesday (at 4:00 p.m.) of the month (subject to change). The meetings are held at the Hampton Falls Town Hall. Work sessions are scheduled as needed. A quorum of two members is required in order to conduct business.

Requests to be placed on the Selectmen's meeting agenda or any other questions must be forwarded to Town Administrator Lori Ruest, One Drinkwater Road, Hampton Falls, NH 03844, 926-4618, extension 3.
