Mary Chaffee was elected to the Executive Board of the Cape Cod and Islands Selectmen and Councilors Association at the group’s annual meeting June 14. The Association works to advance and protect the interests of Cape Cod and the Islands towns by bringing municipal leaders together to share knowledge and experience. Members include each town’s selectmen/select board members as well as Barnstable’s city councilors.
Recent meetings of the Association have addressed the short-term rental legislation, alcohol-related harm in Barnstable County, marijuana issues, property tax classification, and recycling. Each spring the Association hosts an annual meeting with the Cape and Islands legislation delegation to discuss current issues impacting the region.
The new President of the Association is Andrew Gottlieb, a Mashpee Selectman and Executive Director of the Association to Preserve Cape Cod.
