(MARSHFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS) From maintaining roads and infrastructure to providing public safety services and managing parks and recreational facilities, local town governments play a critical role in maintaining and improving the quality of life for residents.

Town governments are responsible for a wide range of services and programs that directly impact the daily lives of all community members. On Friday, March 17, 2023, the seaside town of Marshfield sent a newsletter announcing there are twenty open seats in Town Government for residents to apply to fill!

Which Seats Are Open?

The following are open seats in Marshfield's Town Government:

  • ADA Committee - 1 vacancy
  • Agricultural Commission – 1 vacancy
  • Capital Project Building Committee – 3 vacancies
  • Community Preservation Committee – 1 vacancy
  • Conservation Commission – 1 vacancy
  • Cultural Council – 1 vacancy

  • Marshfield Housing Partnership – 2 vacancies
  • Open Space Committee – 1 vacancy
  • Recreation Commission – 1 vacancy
  • Recreation Field Committee – 2 vacancies

How Are Seats Filled?

The Select Board established the Marshfield Talent Bank to register the names, interests, and qualifications of Marshfield registered voters willing to volunteer to serve their community. Residents serve as volunteers on a wide variety of town boards, committees, commissions, and councils. Seats are appointed to these organizations by the Select Board as vacancies occur. 

How Can You Apply?

The Select Board encourages those interested in registering for an open seat by completing an application form that is available on their website. The form asks basic questions such as your occupation, background, areas of interest, and organizations you would consider serving.
