The Town of Weston has an opening on the Board of Health for a member to fill a vacancy due to a recent resignation. As provided by state law, this vacancy is filled by a vote of the Board of Selectmen and remaining Board of Health members. Candidates for this position should be willing to run for election in May 2018, for the balance of the vacated three-year term, which is valid through May 2019.
