The Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC) is a committee appointed by the Board of Selectmen and reporting to the Steering Committee. Its role is to work with the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) in the wastewater treatment planning process. The TAC will focus on those issues that are technical in nature such as a needs assessment, feasibility study, wastewater treatment alternatives, and facility siting options. The CAC will deal with issues that are political in nature, including but not limited to defining the structure and regulations of a sewer district, cost allocation between users, financing the project, operation and management of the waste-water treatment facility and community outreach and public education. The CAC may also assist the TAC in addressing questions that arise from the TAC’s work that have a political component.
