The Fairfax Town Council consists of five members, who are elected at large by Fairfax residents for four-year terms. Elections are held every two years, with three council members elected in one cycle and two in the alternate cycle. Annually, the five council members select a mayor and vice mayor from their ranks.
The Town operates under a Town Council-Town Manager form of government. Under this form of government, the Town Council is the legislative body responsible for setting town policy, including the adoption of ordinances and land use regulations, the adoption of the annual Town operating and capital budget. The Council appoints the Town Manager and the Town Attorney, as well as members of Town commissions, boards, and advisory committees.
Regular Town Council meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, except for January and July, at 7:00 p.m. at the Women's Club, 46 Park Rd., Fairfax. The regular meetings in January and July are set by resolution each year as to not conflict with the January 1st and July 4th holidays.
The meeting agenda is posted the preceding Friday and a hard copy of the agenda and staff reports is available for review on the counter of Town Hall. You can find the current and archived agendas on the Public Meetings Page.
