About the Council
Town Council is composed of the mayor and six Councilmembers. Town elections are non-partisan, and Councilmembers are elected at large for staggered two-year terms.The mayor is the ranking elected official and ceremonial head of the Town government, presides at council meetings, and has all of the rights and duties of other Councilmembers, including the right to vote on all motions considered by the Town Council. Email the Town Council, Town Manager, and Town Clerk.

The town manager is appointed by Town Council as full-time administrator of the Town government. Duties include preparation of the Town's annual budget, carrying out orders and resolutions of Town Council, and supervising performance of department heads and other officials responsible to him or her.
