The Borough of Lansdowne is located in the southeastern section of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. It is 1.2 square miles in size with a population of 11,044, according to the 2000 census. The borough was incorporated in 1893 and has a mayor-council form of government. Borough Council appoints a solicitor and engineer as well as members of the Board of Health, Recreation and Park Board, Zoning Hearing Board, Library Board, Planning Commission and Tree Advisory Board. The chief administrative officer is the Borough Manager.
Borough Council consists of seven members elected for four-year overlapping terms. On the first Monday in January of each even numbered year, Borough Council conducts a reorganization meeting at which time it elects a President and Vice President. Borough Council directs the activities of the town through the appointed Borough Manager who is responsible for planning, directing and coordinating the day-to-day borough administration.
In addition to the seven council members, residents elect a mayor every four years. The mayor directs the activities of the police department through the Chief of Police. The Mayor may participate in the Borough Council meetings but has no vote, except to break a tie. The mayor also has the authority to veto acts of Borough Council that are of a legislative nature but the council may override the veto with a two-thirds vote
