The Hamilton Town Council, also known as the Town Board, is composed of 4 council members and one town supervisor. Each councilmember is elected and serves a 4-year term, while the town supervisor is elected and serves a 2-year term. Board members are Town of Hamilton residents. Each serves in a part-time capacity.
The Town Council is the governing body of the town. They represent town residents in collective decision making of local government. The Town Council enacts local laws, adopts and oversees the town’s budget and expenditures, oversees town-wide planning and zoning, and manages the various town departments and personnel.

Council meetings are open to the public unless the Council votes to adjourn to Executive Session. A Public Comment period begins at 6:30 p.m. Members of the public may speak to the Council on any matter of interest to the Town of Hamilton.
