About the Office of the Mayor

Mayor William F. Martin serves as the "Chief Executive Officer of the Town," as described in Section 3 of the 2002 Greenfield Charter Commission Final Report.  In 2003, the Office of the Mayor replaced the former Board of Selectmen/Town Manager as the administrative and executive arm of municipal government.

According to the Charter, the executive powers of the Town are solely vested in the mayor.  The mayor is responsible for supervision, direction, and efficient administration of all Town activities and functions placed under the office's control by the general law, Charter, bylaw, or custom.  This includes enforcement of Town bylaws and all other functions logical to the office's mission.

By virtue of office, the mayor is an ex-officio member of every multiple-member Town body and a voting member of the Greenfield School Committee.  The mayor also makes appointments to all Town boards/commissions and may declare states of emergency.

Additionally, the mayor may exercise review and veto authority over proposed legislation, subject to the Charter.  The term of office is three years and is a non-partisan position.
