Governance

The Town of Sweden is governed by a five-member Town Council. The Supervisor serves as the presiding officer and chief fiscal officer. Board members are elected to four-year terms; except for the Supervisor, who is elected to a two-year term.

The Sweden Town Board typically meets on four Tuesdays per month: the second and fourth are regular meetings; the first and third are workshops. The Board goes to a reduced schedule in the summer months; other meetings may be added or cancelled as warranted. During regular Town Board meetings, action is taken by motion or resolution.

Some typical activities of the Town Board include: drafting and adopting legislation which becomes part of the Sweden Town Code; developing and adopting fiscal, personnel and operational policies; adopting a budget and approving all expenditures; hiring all employees and setting wages; appointing members to support boards; hearing and acting on rezoning applications; and overseeing the general operations of the Town.
