The Town of Bay Harbor Islands will hold its annual municipal election on Tuesday, April 2nd, to fill two seats on the Town Council. Council Members Isaac Salver and Robert Yaffe have announced their candidacy.  All residents who are registered voters are urged to come to Town Hall on Election Day between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. to cast votes to fill the elective seats.

Each Town Council member is elected by the voters of the Town for a 4-year term of office.  These terms of office are staggered so that only two Council members run for office each year (with only one seat open each fourth year).  This system provides for stability and continuity in our Town Government.  Each Council member receives a salary of $1 per year, which is traditionally donated to a charitable cause.

The Town Council meets on a regular basis, on the second Monday evening of the month, at least ten (10) times per year.  In addition, the Council members spend many hours at various committee, board, workshops, and special meetings.  By state law, all meetings are open to the public, and members of the community are encouraged to attend meetings to be informed on issues concerning our community.

Please look for the upcoming Town Newletters for updates or contact Town Clerk Marlene M. Siegel or Deputy Town Clerk Alba Chang if you have questions or need additional information, 305-866-6241.  As soon as new information is available it will be posted on the Town's website also.
