Powers and duties


The town manager shall be the chief administrative officer of the town and may be given such powers and duties by local law, as the town board in its discretion shall prescribe notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, unless the legislature expressly shall have restricted or prohibited the adoption of a local law relating to the delegation or grant of such powers provided, however, that the powers of legislation and appropriation shall be exercised by the town board. Subject to the provisions of sections twenty-three and twenty-four of the municipal home rule law, the town board may also, by local law, grant or transfer to such town manager powers and duties held by elected officials of the town.
