Volunteer To Help Your Town

  • Lyme has more than 140 volunteer positions that have to be staffed in order for our town to run efficiently.
  • Local residents volunteer to serve on Town boards, committees and commissions; to represent our Town as members of regional organizations; and tackle countless jobs most of us never even think about.
  • As volunteer positions become available, the Board of Selectmen appoints replacements from a list of candidates proposed by the Democratic and Republican Town Committees and residents who have expressed interest to the Board in the past.
  • Most of these positions require only a small or periodic time commitment; a few positions are more time intensive.
  • No matter where your expertise and interests lie, or how much or how little time you have to share, there’s a way you can volunteer to help our Town.
  • The boards, committees and commissions that sometimes find themselves looking for volunteers include the following:
    • Affordable Housing Commission
    • Board of Assessment Appeals
    • Board of Assessors
    • Board of Finance
    • Building Code of Appeals
    • Cemetery Commission
    • Conservation Commission
    • Hadlyme Ferry Historic District Commission
    • Library Board of Directors
    • Open Space Commission
    • Parks & Recreation Commission
    • Pension Advisory Committee
    • Planning & Zoning Commission
    • Regional Board of Education
    • Water Pollution Control Authority
    • Zoning Board of Appeals
