Liaison positions are individually selected by the Town Council, to which they serve as they eyes and ears and assist the Town by reporting information between meetings and recommending actions that may need to be addressed by the Town or Council. For inquiries, questions or comments, we recommend that citizens contact the Councilmember with the liaison role they are inquiring about, as that will be the Councilmember with the most information on that subject or department. Comments made by the liaison  do not represent the opinion of the entire Town Council, Mayor or staff.
