The Committee includes members from various departments, boards and committees. Selectman Brien Brock serves as Chairman and Police Chief Mike McGillen serves as Vice-Chair.
Some of the duties the committee has been tasked with is working with the architects and contractors on the study, design and estimated costs of the proposed Safety Facility.
