Town Council

The Moraga Town Council is made up of five members of the community elected at-large. Each Council position has a term of four years. Council elections are held biannually in November of even numbered years, with the number of open seats being filled alternating between two and three. The Mayor's position is filled by one of the members of the Town Council and is annually nominated and voted to that position by the Town Council.

The Town Council Members are elected officers identified in Government Code Section 87200 and file statements of economic interests (Form 700) with the Town Clerk’s office.  Copies of the statements of economic interests filed by the above elected officers may be obtained by visiting the offices of the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) or the Town Clerk.

The physical address of the FPPC is 428 J Street, Suite 620, Sacramento, California 95814.  The physical address of the Town Clerk’s office is 329 Rheem Boulevard, Moraga, CA 94556.  The statements of economic interests for some state and local government agency elected officers may be available in electronic format on the FPPC’s website at www.fppc.ca.gov.

Regular meetings of the Town Council are held the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers and Community Meeting Room, 335 Rheem Boulevard, Moraga, California.
