The Hinesburg Selectboard is made up of five elected members. The board is the central point of Hinesburg's local town government and is responsible for the general supervision of the town's affairs. The Selectboard as a whole acts as the official legal representative for the town, and performs three main functions. They are:

* To enact town ordinances, regulations, and policies;
* To prepare and present a town budget and tax rate for the town, as well as overseeing all town expenditures, supervision of personnel and town property;
* Quasi-judicial responsibilities to include, but not limited to: hearing local board of health appeals, acting as the local liquor control board, town right-of-way decisions and reclassifications, and personnel matters.

It is the responsibility of the Town Administrator to implement decisions from the board.

The Selectboard is also responsible for appointing representatives to town boards and commissions, as well as other town vacancies as they arise. For this purpose the board has adopted this Policy for Appointments to Boards and Commissions.

The Selectboard meets the first and third Monday of each month at 7p.m. at the Town Hall. Meetings are open to the public. To request to be on a meeting agenda, contact the Town Administrator.
