[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Islesboro as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Boards — See Ch. 15.
It is the policy of the Islesboro Board of Selectmen to notify the Islesboro community of committee vacancies and to make annual committee appointments in accordance with the following procedures:
Immediately following the first Selectmen's meeting after the Annual Town Meeting, notices will be sent to committee members whose terms are due to expire on June 30 to determine whether they wish to be reappointed.
At the second Selectmen's meeting following the Annual Town Meeting, the vacancies on each committee will be reported to the Board of Selectmen and a listing of the vacancies made public.
Openings on committees shall be posted as widely as possible, including notices in conspicuous public places, newspapers, the Annual Report and the Internet no later than the first week in June.
Committee appointments will be made by the Board of Selectmen no later than its second meeting in July.
The Board shall endeavor to balance membership on committees among the various demographic segments of the community.
Nonvoter residents who indicate a desire to serve on committees will be added to the committees where feasible. Resident voters will continue to constitute the majority of membership on all committees.
It is the policy of the Board of Selectmen to require only those persons appointed to positions or committees that are required by law, ordinance or contract to be sworn in by the Town Clerk or Deputy Town Clerk prior to assuming their duties. Generally those who volunteer for positions or serve on ad hoc committees are not required to be sworn in.
