The County of Ulster is divided into 23 Legislative Districts.
Each district elects one person to be a member of the County Legislature. Legislators serve two-year terms.
The role of the county legislature is to:
- Enact, amend, or rescind local laws and resolutions.
- Set our county government’s administrative policies.
- Approve the county budget and authorize spending of our county tax dollars.
General Legislative meetings are typically held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Legislative Chambers on the 6th floor of the County Office Building, 244 Fair Street, Kingston, NY. The legislative calendar lists upcoming meetings.
These meetings are open to the public and also videotaped.
Rules of conduct for citizens who want to address the full County Legislature:
- It’s first come, first served.
- You get 5 minutes.
- You must stick to the subject.
- And you can’t attack the character of a legislator or you can be barred from attending future meetings.
