The First Selectman of the town is an ex officio member of said Board, and votes only in the case of a tie. The Board chooses one of its members to be Chairman, with the Town Clerk serving as Clerk of the Board and keeping a record of all meetings and votes. The Board’s regular meetings are on the last Monday of the month. Special meetings may be called by either the Chairman of the Board or upon written request of any two members.

The Board of Finance has charge of the town’s investments and controls all sinking funds, amortization funds, deposit funds and all other trust funds which shall have been placed in the hands of the Town of Branford for a special purpose.
