Meeting the 3rd Tuesday each month, the Council’s 16 members are elected as an advisory body that communicates and coordinates residents’ needs with public agencies and to Supervisor Michael Antonovich of the Fifth District, Altadena’s official representative on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
Any resident interested in serving their community as a town council representative is encouraged to pick up an application package and return it by May 10th. Census tract maps can be viewed at altadenatowncouncil.org.
