Mayor and Town Council Members
Lovettsville’s governing body consists of a Mayor, who is elected directly by Town citizens, and six Town Council Members. The Mayor is elected every two years. Each Town Council Member is elected to a four-year term. The Mayor and Town Council are responsible for setting the legislative policies of the Town. This includes approving an annual budget and capital improvements plan. They also consider land use requests such as re-zonings and conditional use permits.
The Mayor and individual Council Members may be contacted directly on any issue.

The Town Council approved the FY19 Town Calendar at the first meeting in July. The Council generally meets at least twice a month on Thursday evenings. All meetings are held at the Town Hall, 6 East Pennsylvania Avenue, at 7:30p.m. (unless otherwise announced) and are open to the public, unless the Council is meeting in closed session. The public is invited to speak at all regular meetings and special public hearings.
Citizens wishing to submit written comments to be distributed to the Mayor and Council as part of the meeting packets should ensure they are received by the Town Clerk by 3:00 PM on the Thursday before the meeting. Written comments may be mailed or emailed and must contain the senders’ name and physical address and should indicate that they are intended for distribution to the Mayor and Council.
Comments received by the Clerk after the packet is distributed and before 3:00 PM on the day of the meeting will be distributed to the Mayor and Council at the beginning of the meeting.
In June 2017, the Town implemented a video recording system for Town Council and Planning Commission meetings. The meeting agenda and related documents, videos, and action minutes for meetings since June 2017 can be found on the Town Hall Videos page.
