The Town Board is the legislative body of the Town of Oyster Bay. Comprising the Supervisor and six Council members, the Board has the final responsibility for all matters pertaining to the operation of the Town, exclusive of incorporated villages. It exercises this authority in the form of local laws, ordinances and resolutions.
The Supervisor and the Council members are elected on a Town-wide basis. The Supervisor serves a two-year term. The Council members are elected to four-year terms, which expire in such a way that on any given election day, no more than three full councilmanic terms of office will be decided. In the event the Supervisor or a Council member leaves office prior to completion of a full term, the Town Board appoints a replacement. That person serves until the next regularly scheduled term. There is no limit to the number of terms the Supervisor or Council members may serve.
