Fence viewers are usually composed of three individuals who are appointed by the Selectmen and are petitioned by a citizen of the Town to settle a dispute between neighbors as to each ones's responsibility for building and maintaining the fence which divides their respective properties, which is under improvement (used for cattle, sheep, etc.) thus the division of responsibility. The fence viewers make a decision as to which of the neighbors builds and maintains different sections of the fence between them which works out to be fair to each with respect to material and labor.
