How can someone become a Council member?

Prescott Town Council members are elected at large on a 4-year term. Our next municipal election will occur in October 2026. Individuals interested in running for Council or Mayor are encouraged to reach out to the Director of Administration/Clerk, for more information.

Why become a Council member?

Serving on Council means more than just attending meetings. It can be a time consuming, demanding and challenging job. It’s important to remember that you are not alone. You are one member of a team.

By working with your fellow Councillors, the Mayor, and Administration staff, you make the policies that direct planning, financing and community services relating to the welfare or interests of the residents of the community as a whole.
