What the Council Does
Llanfairfechan Town Council was formed after the re-organisation of Local Government in 1974. In comparison with the former Urban District Council the current Town Council has lesser powers and responsibilities, but still plays an important and valuable role in the day to day administration of the town and its affairs.
The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected annually by fellow councillors. We employ three part time members of staff; the Town Clerk who is also the Responsible Financial Officer, Admin Assistant, and an Environmental Operative who maintains the cleanliness of the town centre and the promenade.
