The seven members of the Freeport Town Council serve as the chief elected officials of the Town of Freeport. All local legislative powers, including the authority to enact local ordinances, the authority to set an annual budget and capital program for the Town, and the authority to broadly set Town policy, rest with the Council. The Town Council has the sole authority to appoint and remove the Town Manager, and also must confirm the Town Manager's appointees to lead many of the Town's administrative departments.
The Council's members are elected to staggered three year terms, so that either two or three Council seats are up for re-election in any given year. Four of the Council seats are reserved to represent the four voting districts of the Town (one for each district), while three of the Council seats are elected "at large", or by all of the voters of the Town.
Each year the Town Council elects a Chair and Vice-Chair from within its membership. The Council Chair is responsible for the conduct of Town Council meetings and workshops, and often represents the Town as the ceremonial head of the Town government. The Vice-Chair serves in this capacity during any absence of the Council Chair.
