Frederick is a Statutory Town, which means that it follows state laws in its structure and operation. Six Trustees and one Mayor serve as elected officials to guide the Town through the “big picture” of establishing mission/vision/goals. The Mayor serves as the presiding officer for the Town Board meetings but does not carry any additional voting weight. The Mayor may be part of ceremonial events as the spokesperson for the Town.
