About Board of Selectmen

 Durham was governed by the New England town meeting form of government. An elected Board of Selectmen composed of three members managed its everyday affairs. The selectmen had charge of caring for the poor, the sick and the needy. They also had control of the management and maintenance of the highway. The term of office was changed to four years with the Charter Revision of 2006. The Flood and Erosion Control Authority, The Traffic Commission, and the Water Pollution Control Authority, who are the Board of Selectmen, will meet in special session, as needed.
