Boards & Commissions
Under the Groton Town Charter and the laws of the State of Connecticut, many functions and powers of local governments have been assigned to local Agencies, Boards and Commissions. The Town Council or Town Manager are the appointing authority. Some committees serve only in advisory roles, while others have defined authority and make decisions that are not subject to review by the Town Council. Town Charter Sec. 5.4.3 Regulation of Agencies, Authorities, Boards, Commissions and Committee states that the Council is responsible for the proper function and operation of all offices and ABC which it fills by appointment, but not their decisions.
Applications and other information are available at the Town Clerk’s office. To apply, visit the Town Clerk’s office or use the online application form. Please select this item from the menu located on the left side of this page.
The agendas for regular and special meetings are posted with the Town Clerk no less than 24 hours before the meeting, as required by the CT Freedom of Information Act law. FOIA law also requires that records of meeting of all pubic agencies be open to the public. However, the law also recognizes the need for occasional closed executive sessions and emergency meetings. Check the Groton Municipal Television listing for all video recordings of meetings.
