Town Council Elections are held in even numbered years. The Primary Election is held on the 2nd Tuesday in March and the General Election, if one is
necessary, is held on the 3rd Tuesday in May.
The Town operates under a council-manager form of government in which the
elected Town Council is responsible for making policy, adopting
ordinances, making appropriations, and exercising general
governmental oversight. The Mayor acts as a member and presiding
officer of the Council, in addition to fulfilling ceremonial
duties and representing the Town on regional committees and
organizations. This governing structure is patterned after the
private business or corporate structure in which policy making
and administrative operations are separated. This structure
simplifies government and reduces direct political involvement
The Council is composed of seven members who are elected to serve four-year
staggered terms. At the first meeting of a new term, the
Council selects a mayor and vice-mayor from among its members to
serve a two year term. Council Members serve on a voluntary
basis accepting no compensation for their service.
The Council appoints the Town Manager who is responsible for administering
government operations, appointing department heads, and
implementing the policies adopted by the Council. The Council
also appoints the Town Attorney, the Municipal Court Judges, and
all members of various Town boards, committees, and commissions.
