Town Council is the legislative body of our Town government.
Town Council currently consists of seven Councilmembers, each of whom is elected from the district in which they reside to serve four-year overlapping terms.
NOTE: Beginning with the November election results, Town Council will consist of six Councilmembers and a Mayor elected at large.
Elections are held in November of even numbered years, and Council seats are up for election on an alternating basis. Councilmember terms are limited to two consecutive four-year terms.
Districts 3 and 5, as well as a Mayor at Large will be elected in November of 2018
Districts 1, 2, 4 and 6 will be elected in November 2020
Councilmembers elected in the November election take office at the first regular meeting scheduled in December.
At this organizational meeting of Council, one of its members is elected as Mayor Pro Tem by a majority vote. The Mayor Pro Tem is elected every two years.
The Mayor presides at Council meetings and is recognized as the head of the Town government for all ceremonial and legal purposes. The Mayor has the same powers and responsibilities of a Councilmember. The Mayor Pro Tem performs duties and has the powers of the Mayor when the Mayor is unavailable.
Additionally, members of Town Council serve and represent the Town on numerous local, county and regional committees and boards.
