Town Board

The Town Board is a five-member board elect that consists of four Board Members and a Supervisor.

The Board Members are elected for four-year terms, and the Supervisor is elected for a two-year term. The Town Board functions as a legislative body of the Town and is responsible for setting policy, adopting the annual budget, and enacting laws and resolutions for the “health, safety and welfare” of the Town’s residents.

The Supervisor functions as the Chief Fiscal Officer and Chief Executive Officer. A Deputy Supervisor is appointed to assist with the duties of the Supervisor during his or her absence.

All Town Board meetings are open to the public, and only certain legally sensitive issues may be discussed in a private executive session.


The Town of Bedford is reliant upon the steadfast commitment of the appointees that serve on our Boards, Commissions and Committees. They are comprised of your neighbors and friends who invest countless hours as our stewards and protectors of the environment, health, safety, welfare and future of the Town’s open spaces, water, trees, and more.

All  meetings are open to the public. To find meeting dates and times, please refer to the meeting calendar on this website. 

To learn more about the Boards, Commissions and Committees, see the section on this website devoted to them.
