The Town Administrator shall be the fiscal officer of the town for the purpose of approval of warrants for the payment of town funds prepared by the town accountant in accordance with the provisions of the general laws and submitted to the Town Administrator. The approval of such warrants by the Town Administrator shall be sufficient authority to authorize payment by the town treasurer, but the Board of Selectmen shall approve warrants for payment or reimbursement of the Town Administrator, and all warrants in the event of the absence of the Town Administrator or a vacancy in the office of the Town Administrator.
All warrants for payment shall be made available to the members of the Board of Selectmen at the same time the warrants are forwarded to the Town Administrator. Any member of the Board of Selectmen may discuss any matter that is on a warrant for payment with the Town Administrator, and, if not satisfied that an item on a warrant is appropriate for payment, may ask the chair of the Board of Selectmen to place the matter on the next Board of Selectmen agenda, provided that such meeting is held within fourteen days after the warrant was issued, at which the Board of Selectmen shall consider and may, to the extent permitted by law, vote to disapprove such item. Any item for payment so disapproved by the Board of Selectmen shall not be approved for payment by the Town Administrator.”
