Town Council is made up of six members and the presiding officer, the Mayor. The terms of the Mayor and Council members are four years, with three elected every two years. Council members are elected at large and they feel that they are serving the entire municipality, rather than giving undue attention to the special interests of the ward that elected them. The Mayor, who is the President of the Council, presides at all meetings. Furthermore, being a member, the Mayor participates in all discussions and has a vote on all questions, but does not have a veto. All of these provisions differ from the Borough Code.
