Council of Governments

A Council of Governments serves as a forum to promote cooperation among its member municipalities. WestCOG can initiate and implement services and programs as authorized by its municipalities. WestCOG also advises the region on land use, economic, emergency, and environmental planning.

Council Members

WestCOG is governed by a council composed of Chief Elected Officials — mayors and first selectmen. Each WestCOG member municipality is entitled to one representative and one vote on the council.
