Topsfield Town Government
Alphabetical Listing

Topsfield, like many New England towns, is governed by Town Meeting and a group of elected and appointed boards whose powers and authorities are enabled by the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Over time this system has evolved to include a large number of departments, boards, committees and commissions, some of which employ agents.

Town Departments are managed and operated by Town employees who are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Town. Town Departments provide municipal services and attend to Topsfield's ongoing business. An elected Town board or official supervises each Town Department. Town Boards, Committees and Commissions are comprised of citizen volunteers who are either elected or appointed. All meetings of all official Town boards, committees and commissions are posted in advance and are open to the public in accordance with the Open Meeting Law.
