Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is the policy-making legislative body of the Town. It consists of one Mayor and six Board members elected at large, each for a four-year term. Expiration of terms is staggered, and elections for Board members are held every two years. After each biennial election, the Board elects from among themselves a Mayor Pro Tem. All members of the Board must have resided within the town limits for at least 12 months prior to election. The Board takes action by enactment of ordinances, resolutions, and formal motions, which provide direction for the Town Staff. The Board appoints a Town Administrator, Town Attorney, Town Clerk, Town Treasurer and Municipal Judge.
