The office of mayor is the only elected executive officer in Pennsylvania borough government. In contrast to the council, the mayor acts alone in carrying out mayoral powers and duties, which are primarily in the areas of public safety and emergency response. From a public policy perspective, these areas of government action are highly sensitive and confidential, lending themselves well to executive decision making by a single public official in contrast to a deliberative body.
