Welcome to the Town of Groton, Connecticut

Boards & Commissions

The form of government for the Town of Groton is regulated under the Groton Town Charter and the laws of the State of Connecticut. Most of the functions and powers of our government has been assigned to local Agencies, Boards and Commissions.  The Town Council or Town Manager are the appointing authority for most of the Agencies, Boards, and Commissions. Some committees serve only in an advisory role, while others have defined authority and make decisions that are not subject to review by the Town Council. Groton Town Charter Sec. 5.4.3 Regulation of Agencies, Authorities, Boards, Commissions and Committee states that the Council is responsible for the proper function and operation of all offices and ABC which it fills by appointment, but not their decisions.

Applications and other information are available at the Town Clerk’s office. To apply, visit the Town Clerk’s office or use the online application form, located below.

The agendas for regular and special meetings are posted with the Town Clerk no less than 24 hours before the meeting, as required by the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act law, and on the Town website. The minutes of each agency meeting must also be made available to the public.  All meetings are posted on the Town website and may be available to view online. Visit the Groton Municipal Television listing for all video recordings of meetings.
