Most towns have either a town manager or town administrator, whose duties can vary depending on the bylaws of the municipality.
Town managers frequently have more responsibilities, such as the ability to appoint and deal with personnel, including creating collective-bargaining agreements, and preparing budgets.
Town administrators often act as chief executive officers who make recommendations, with final decisions made by selectmen.
