The Councillors serve for four years with elections held every two years in March when four seats and five seats becoming vacant at alternate polls. The Barbuda Council administers and regulates agriculture, forestry, public health, public utilities and roads as exclusive powers, and raises and collects revenue to meet expenses incurred in the performance of its functions.
