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 Town Council is a seven member board consisting of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, and five regular members. The Councilors’ duties and responsibilities are governed by the Town Charter. Members of the Town Council are elected each November and serve for three years. Terms are staggered so that no more than three Councilors are elected during a single election. The Town Clerk serves as Clerk of the Council, preparing and maintaining the Council’s records.
Regular Town Council meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm, unless it is a federal holiday. Special meetings may be held at other times with proper notice. If you would like to submit an agenda item for a Town Council meeting, submissions are due to the Town Clerk two weeks prior to the meeting.
During Town Council meetings, Lincoln residents and/or taxpayers are encouraged to speak during the public forum portion of the meeting either in person or via Zoom. The Council can agree to hear from a person who is not a Lincoln resident or taxpayer on limited occasions if doing so will advance Council efforts. If you are a Lincoln resident and/or taxpayer and would like to participate in the open forum via Zoom, please send an email with your name and the topic of your concern to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on the day of the meeting.
You can access video recordings, agendas, and materials from past Town Council meetings under Meeting Archives. If you would like to request printed materials or additional documents, you must submit a Freedom of Access request to the Town Clerk.
