Wondering How Plainfield Works?

Information about town roles and responsibilities now available

To the Inhabitants of Plainfield,


As we come up to a Special Town Meeting (Mar. 14) and the annual Town Caucus (Mar. 15), you might be wondering how our little town is run and what the different roles are. I've created a new page on the town website at plainfield-ma.us/about where I am starting to collect this information.

So far, I've posted a collection of job descriptions that the selectboard adopted in 2018 and Lori Austin located. If you are aware of other descriptions that I missed, we would love to have copies. I have also started filling in some other roles that are mentioned in the town bylaws. Eventually, I'll try to make this overview comprehensive, so if there is something in particular you would like to see about our town government, please let me know.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the Special Town Meeting or Caucus, or at the Annual Town Meeting on May 6, 2023.

Respectfully submitted,

Brian Hawthorne
Town Moderator
