Town Government Format

The voters of the Town of East Greenwich, through a "Home Rule Charter" approved in 1972, adopted a Council/Manager form of government. This provides a 5 member legislative body with a professional administrator. The legislative body is styled after the traditional New England form of government with a 5 member Town Council elected at large for 2 year terms. The Town Manager is chosen by the Town Council and serves at their discretion. The Town Manager is charged with the administrative responsibility of the Town Government.

Rules and Guidelines are to be reviewed biennially on the first Town Council meeting in the February following a general election.
