Board of Selectmen
The five member Board of Selectmen serve staggered three-year terms, and hold the Town's executive powers as granted by state general laws and the Town of Blackstone bylaws. The Board is the chief goal setting and policy making agency of the Town. It makes key financial decisions and presents recommended actions to Town Meeting voters. The Selectmen are responsible for establishing the warrant (agenda) for all Town Meetings, and are also responsible for making appointments of town employees and members of appointed Board and Committees.
