Ordinances and Policies are the rules and regulations governing specific activities in the Town of Sangerville. What is the difference between the two? Ordinances are enacted by a majority vote of the citizens of Sangerville on a warrant article at an annual Town Meeting or a Special Town Meeting. Policies are passed by a majority vote of the Sangerville Board of Selectmen at a regular or special Select Board meeting. Ordinances and Policies can only be changed through the same process as they are enacted. The Town has a process whereby Sangerville citizens can petition the voters to enact an ordinance at the next annual Town Meeting. Other than the different ways in which Ordinances and Policies are enacted, there is no other difference between the two.
The Town’s Policies and Ordinances are listed here in alphabetical order.
