Carrboro Board of Aldermen

Carrboro’s Board of Aldermen is responsible for guiding the town of Carrboro and making policy decisions. Carrboro has a council/manager form of government, which means the aldermen are responsible for the town’s legislative responsibilities. There are six members of the board, along with the mayor who leads it. The current mayor is Lydia Lavelle.

The board is advised by the town manager, along with a number of other advisory boards and committees. These are often run by aldermen. They deal with issues such as economic development, climate change and human services.

Board meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, work sessions on 2nd Tuesdays, and public hearings on 4th Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Hall at 301 W. Main Street.
