About the Council

The Town Council is the governing body of the Town and consists of seven council members who are elected at-large. By Charter, the Council selects a Chairperson from among its members following each election. Members of the Council serve for three-year terms and are responsible for providing policy direction to the Town Manager.

The election for Council members is held once a year on the 2nd Tuesday in March. Nomination papers are available in the Town Clerk's Office beginning mid-December.
