Arlington Town Government – Structure & Staffing

A five member Board of Selectmen elected by the registered voters of the Town governs the Town of Arlington. Also elected are the Town Clerk, the Town Treasurer, three Listers, three Auditors, three Grand Jurors, seven Justices of the Peace, and several other Town officials. The Board of Selectmen appoints a Health Officer and one Deputy, a seven member Planning Commission, a seven member Zoning Board of Adjustment, and approximately twenty other residents to perform Town functions. Also, the Selectmen hire a Road Commissioner and road crew, a Secretary to the Board, and a Town Attorney. The town contracts with the Bennington County Sheriff’s Department for their services. The Planning Commission appoints a Land Use Administrator with the consent of the Selectmen.

In total, some eighty Town residents serve the Town government in one capacity or another. The principal Town officers are paid annual salaries or an hourly wage. Most of the appointed officers serve without pay.  The Select Board is currently evaluating whether or not the existing governing structure is sufficient to meet the complex and growing demands of managing the Town. At some point over the coming years, the townspeople may decide that it is necessary to move to a structure of government that includes a salaried Town Manager or Supervisor, along with the Board.
