Board of Selectmen

The Board of Selectmen (BoS) is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the town and ensuring the town meets its financial obligations and goals – within the limits of the budget approved by the residents each May at the town meeting.  The BoS is responsible for preparing the annual budget for the Board of Finance to review and ultimately present to residents for approval.  The BoS also has the power to appoint residents to fill vacancies on most other town boards and commissions, should they become available between election cycles.

The residents of Lyme elect the three members of the BoS, who then serve for two-year terms. The current board members are:

  • Steven Mattson, Democrat – First Selectman
    (Term expiration: November 16, 2019)
  • Parker Lord, Republican – Second Selectman
    (Term expiration: November 16, 2019)
  • John Kiker, Democrat – Third Selectman
    (Term expiration: November 16, 2019)

Typically, the BoS meets the first and third Monday of each month at 3:30 p.m. at the Lyme Town Hall.
