From the Office of the Town Manager:

Welcome to the Town of Merrimack. We hope you find this website informative and easy to use. You will find department-specific information and contact links on each of the department web pages. If you have questions or concerns that are not addressed by the appropriate department, feel free to email the Town Manager or call (603) 424-2331. 

The Town Council and Town staff are committed to achieving excellence in the delivery of community services and we are very much interested in your advice and suggestions.

Merrimack has functioned as a Town Council/Town Manager form of government since 2006.

The Town Manager is appointed by the Town Council and serves at their pleasure to function as the Chief Executive and Administrative Officer of the Town, responsible for:

  • Proper administration of all the departments of Town government.
  • Carries out policy decisions of the Town Council, and oversees all property, real and personal, owned by the Town.
  • Keeps the Council informed of the Town’s needs and ongoing conditions, and makes reports as may be required by law, or requested by the Council, or judged necessary by the Manager.
  • Takes part in all discussions which come before the Town Council, but acts in a nonvoting advisory capacity.

As Chief Executive for the Town, the Town Manager is also the responsible supervisor for all department heads, and acts to appoint, suspend, remove, or discipline all municipal employees.

On an annual basis, the Town Manager provides to the Town Council an Operating Budget, a Budget Statement, and a long-range Capital Plan. These documents outline the immediate and longer range financial and project plans for the Town.
