Advisory Board

'MART' was created pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 161B which mandates that we should be governed by an Advisory Board through a set of by-laws. The following are highlights of the By-Laws in reference to Advisory Board membership and responsibility.

Membership: Voting members of the MART Advisory Board shall be composed of the chief elected official of each of the member communities of a MART, or a representative of the chief elected official who has been appointed as a designee.

Vote: Each member city or town shall have one vote on the Advisory Board plus additional votes and fractions thereof determined by multiplying one and one half times the total number of members in the Authority by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the total amount of all assessments made by the state treasurer to such members under this chapter and the denominator shall be the total amount of all such assessments made by the state treasurer to such members, in accordance with Chapter 161B of Mass. General Laws. The total vote of each member shall each year be determined by the Authority thirty days after the state treasurer has sent assessments to the members of the Authority. The determination of votes shall be based upon the most recent annual assessment. In the event a member community does not have an assessment, that community will have one vote.

Ex-officio Members: The Authority shall have the power to elect ex-officio members without the right to vote.

Powers, Duties and Responsibilities: The Advisory Board shall have further powers, duties and responsibilities necessary to effectuate the goals and purposes of the Authority and which are not inconsistent with Chapter 161B of the General Laws.
