The Advisory Board represents the cities and towns in budget, capital planning,  and other matters.  Representatives, one from each community, are appointed annually (by the selectmen, mayor, or manager, depending on the municipality's form of government), and have a weighted vote based on community property valuation, which is also the basis of the annual county tax assessment.

The Advisory Board receives its authority from Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 35 Section 28B, and related statutes, including  Chapter 73 of the Acts of 1989.

The principal responsibilities of the Advisory Board are  review and approval of County budgets and appropriations.The Advisory Board also receives reports and makes recommendations on other matters affecting the County and its municipalities. The Advisory Board meets approximately five times per year, usually at the Norfolk County Agricultural High School in Walpole.


The Norfolk County Advisory Board is also a resource for member communities. Both public officials and citizens are encouraged to contact the Advisory Board on any relevant matter or concern.
