Mission Statement
The Merrimac Board of Selectmen has 3 members who are elected to serve 3 year terms. The Town Bylaws and the General Laws of Massachusetts grant the Selectmen broad powers to govern the Town.

The Selectmen act as the primary policy-making body for a wide variety of issues, which affect the Town's development and provision of services. They recommend the budget to the Annual Town Meeting, approve the reorganization of Town departments; provide oversight for matters in litigation; and act as the licensing authority for a variety of licenses and permits.
