Mayor & Council
About Town Council
Five Town Councillors, Mayor, and Deputy Mayor make up the Town Council of Torbay. The Mayor & Councillors are elected during the municipal election, which is normally held throughout the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador every four years. The Town Councillors and the Mayor subsequently elect the Deputy Mayor during the first meeting of the new Council. The election of the Deputy Mayor is conducted by the Town Clerk or Returning Officer and is decided by a secret vote.
The position of Mayor for the Town of Torbay is determined by a separate vote. The Mayor is the presiding officer of the Town Council and is the official head of the Town for all ceremonial purposes. The Mayor, and in his or her absence, the Deputy Mayor, shall preside at all meetings of the Town Council.
Your Town Council welcomes communication from residents on any municipal matters of concern.
