Town Council

General Information

In order to facilitate open communication, the Town of Duck encourages the community to participate in its government. At regularly scheduled meetings of the Town Council, a time of “PUBLIC COMMENT” will be set aside at the beginning of each meeting. This is a time for anyone to address the Town Council on any matter not on the agenda for that meeting. In the interest of time, the Mayor may set and enforce appropriate time limits for comments. During all meetings, courteousness and quiet consideration for all those present is requested. Another way for the community to share its thoughts and concerns is through participation and attendance at formal “PUBLIC HEARINGS.” When required by law or considered advisable by the Town Council, a public hearing will be organized by a special order, adopted by a majority vote, setting forth the subject, date, place, and time of the hearing as well as any rules regarding the length of time of each speaker. The Mayor (or Mayor’s Designee) will call the hearing to order, preside over it, and when the allotted time expires (or no one who has not yet spoken wishes to do so), declare the hearing ended.

For more information about the Town of Duck Council, its meetings and rules of procedures, please refer to Town of Duck Ordinance No. 04-04. All members of the Duck Town Council are elected to two-year terms in odd years. The next municipal election will be on Tuesday, November 3, 2015.
