Town Moderator

Robert Floyd (Town Moderator)

General Responsibilities and Duties

The Town Moderator’s primary responsibility is more about process than policy. The Moderator is in charge of the running of the annual and all special Town Meetings. It is the Moderator’s job to insure a civil debate that protects the rights of the minority while ensuring the will of the majority.

The Moderator works closely with the Select Board who set the meeting date and post the agenda and the Finance Committee who are required to make recommendation to the voters on items brought before the Town Meeting.
