Mayor of Woodside
Michael Warren has been Mayor of Woodside for the past eight years, along with serving as Treasurer of Woodside for over twelve years. He was re-elected as Mayor in March 2017 and was not challenged for the position in March 2018, so he will remain in this position until the election in 2020. Over the past year, he has found people to fill all the positions for the Town Council and Officers and held regular council meetings every other month. He is currently in the process of working with the state of Delaware and the Woodside Town Council to complete a new Comprehensive Land Use Plan and updating the town charter and ordinances. Michael Warren is the contact person for renting out the Woodside Town Hall for private events. He is accessible to all the town residents via his personal cell phone number of 302-531-6883.
The duties of the Woodside Mayor are numerous, although his main duty is to serve as the head of the Town government and have general superintendence of all municipal affairs. The Mayor shall receive complaints of nuisances and all complaints of violation of laws or ordinances. He must present these complaints to the Council at its first meeting thereafter, for action by the Council. The Mayor has the same right as other officers and council members to vote on all matters and may at any time appoint another officer or council member to preside, if he desires to make a motion, move the adoption of a resolution or debate any question from the floor and may thereafter immediately resume his duties as presiding officer. All members of the Town Council, including the Mayor, all are volunteers, working together to govern their town.
