Manhattan Borough Board

The Borough Board consists of the Manhattan Borough President, who serves as chair, Council Members representing the borough, and the chairpersons of all the community boards in the borough (who may vote only on matters directly affecting their community districts).

The Borough Board has the power to initiate and review comprehensive or special purpose plans for the borough and is responsible for preparing a comprehensive statement of expenses and capital budget priorities for the borough as well as mediating any disputes between community boards. The Borough Board bylaws are available here.
