Form of Government

The Home Rule Borough of Edinboro operates under a Council-Manager form of government.  Under this form, Borough Council has all legislative responsibilities and the Borough Manager has all administrative responsibilities.  Seven Borough Council members are elected by the residents of the Borough to serve staggered four-year terms. 

One of the seven Council members is appointed, by Council, as Mayor annually at the Council Reorganizational Meeting (held the first Monday of January, unless the first Monday is a legal holiday, at which point the meeting would be held the following day).  The primary function of the Mayor is to be the presiding officer of the Council meetings, while representing the Borough as the "ceremonial head" of the local government.  All seven members of Council, including the Mayor, share equal authority.

The Borough Manager is also appointed annually at the Council Reorganizational Meeting.  The Manager is considered the chief executive and administrative officer of the Borough and is responsible for all administrative duties of the Borough, including managing personnel and daily operations.

In 1975, the residents of the Borough voted to adopt a Home Rule Charter, altering the form of government.  A Home Rule
municipality no longer has its powers and organization determined by the state legislature. A Home Rule municipality can exercise any power or perform any function not denied by the Constitution, the General Assembly or its own Home Rule Charter. It is not subject to any provisions of the municipal codes. General legislation in specified areas still applies as do all
laws uniform and applicable statewide.  To view the full text of the Charter, click here (also shown to the right, or below if viewing on mobile). To date, more than 70 PA municipalities have adopted a Home Rule Charter.
