Call no.: SC1/132

Scope and Content: Pursuant to MGLA c 42, s 2, selectmen of towns must perambulate town boundaries and locate boundary markers once every five years.  A record of the perambulation is kept permanently with the town clerk and copies are sent to the clerk and selectmen of contiguous towns.  Although not required to do so by law, selectmen of many towns also transmit notices of perambulation to the state secretary’s office to certify that perambulation has occurred.
