Eight volunteer Town residents serve on the Recreation Board. Board
members are appointed to 3-year terms by the Selectboard. The board
oversees all of the Town’s parks, playgrounds, recreation facilities,
and other lands used for leisure purposes. The board advises the
Selectboard on recreation matters, including preparation of an annual
operating budget, suggestions for capital improvements, and recommendations
for new or higher fees. A major Recreation Board task is scheduling
use of the athletic fields for the many leagues and youth programs.
See Recreation under Departments for
more information about the facilities.
The Cemetery Commission has full charge and responsibility
for the care and maintenance of the town’s cemeteries. It establishes
the policies, rules and regulations for operation of the cemeteries;
sets prices for services provided; lays out lots, drives and paths;
and recommends to the Selectboard prices for burial lots.
The Town of Barre could not conduct Town business without the help of numerous volunteers. Each year the Town recognizes and thanks all those individuals and businesses to help make Barre Town a better place to live.
