The Town of Lincoln has a Council-Manager form of government and acts as the general legislative body of the municipality by representing all Lincoln residents. The Councilor’s duties and responsibilities are governed by the Town Charter. The Town Council is a seven (7) member board consisting of a Chairman, Vice Chairman and five regular members.
The Town Clerk serves as Clerk of the Council preparing and maintaining the Council’s record, acting as the licensing and permitting agent and performing duties as required. Agenda Items for any Town Council agenda are due to the Town Clerk two weeks prior to the meeting. On the Wednesday prior to the regularly scheduled business meeting, unless otherwise noted on the agenda, the Town Council agenda and backup materials are released and delivered to Councilors. The next business day, the agenda packet is uploaded to the Town’s website for the public to view. Should a member of the public wish to have materials printed, they must submit a Freedom of Access request to the Town Clerk for release.
Members of the Town Council are elected each November and serve for three (3) years. Terms are staggered so that no more than three (3) Councilors will be elected at one election. Members of the Council must be registered voters and qualify for office. Elections are held in November and at the special organizational meeting, officers are nominated and voted upon. During this meeting each year, Council rules are reviewed and voted, which sets their code of conduct for the upcoming year.
