Supervisor and Council
The administration of West Seneca consists of the office of the Supervisor, Town Board and Town Attorney
The Town Board is composed of the Supervisor and two Town Council Members. It is the responsibility of the Town Board to run the town government, including legislation, budget, and hiring.
The Supervisor and two Town Council Members make policy decisions in accord with procedures and responsibilities set out in State law. The Town Supervisor carries out policies and directives of the Council.
The Supervisor is elected for four-year terms. Council Members are also elected for four-year terms, but the terms are staggered so one seat is filled by an election every two years. Town elections for Supervisor and Town Council are non-partisan and at large (no wards/districts are designated) and are held in November of odd-numbered years.
