SALEM: THE GATEWAY to NEW HAMPSHIRE
The Salem Town Seal, with its motto, "Industry, Commerce, Recreation," serves as a perfect backdrop for the community's unique assets - location, accessibility, unspoiled natural resources and a pro-business attitude. It's a combination that will serve as a guide to prosperity well into the new century.
Salem mixes small town, rural living with the advantages offered by a city. Add to that being located in "the most livable" state in the country, one of the most favorable business climates anywhere, easy access to Boston (not to mention the entire Northeast and Canada) and an educated, highly motivated and dedicated workforce and you have the ideal place to live, work and raise a family.
Meet the Board of Selectmen:
The duty of the Board of Selectmen, as per RSA 41:8, is to "manage the prudential affairs of the town". The Board of Selectmen establish policies, set the long term goals and direction for the provision of municipal services, and review and authorize budgetary expenditures and other appropriations deemed necessary for municipal services.
While the members of the Board of Selectmen are not generally in the administrative offices during the day, any inquiries, concerns, or issues can be addressed by the Administrative staff and/or the Town Manager, Keith R. Hickey. In addition, the Selectmen may be reached at their homes, if desired, or you may mail correspondence to them at the Salem Town Hall, 33 Geremonty Drive, Salem, NH 03079, or e-mail the Board of Selectmen at:
