who contribute generously of their time and effort.  The Town of Bedford currently
has approximately twelve (12) appointed boards, committees and commissions. 
Although the frequency of meetings varies depending on the responsibilities and
workload of the particular committee or commission, most meet either monthly or
biweekly. For more information on a specific board, committee or commission
