[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Islesboro as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is the policy of the Board of Selectmen to establish working policies for the current Board and for future Boards.
A policy may be proposed in writing by any member of the Board and upon motion and after discussion and any amendments shall be deemed approved if it obtains at least three affirmative votes. The written policy shall then be placed in the book of Selectmen's policies. The same procedure shall be followed for amending policies.
The Board may deviate from time to time from these policies as circumstances dictate. At least three affirmative votes are required to deviate from a policy and the reason for so doing shall be placed in the minutes. A copy of that portion of the minutes shall be on file with the official copy of the policies book.
