The Warrant Committee is composed of 7-12 members appointed by the Board of Selectmen for 3-year terms. The purpose of the Warrant Committee is to review and make recommendations about municipal and school budget requests and supplemental appropriations and expenditures.
The authority of the Warrant Committee is advisory and its recommendations to the Board of Selectmen are published in the Town Warrant and presented at the Annual Town Meeting each May.
All Warrant Committee meetings are public meetings. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this process. The Committee, however, has no legal obligation to take public comment at their meetings.
The Town of Southwest Harbor is currently seeking new members to join the Warrant Committee. If interested in serving, please contact the Town Office at 244-7900 for a Volunteer Application or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
