Municipal Elected Offices

Write something about your church here.

Elections held to elect people to fill positions within a town or city government are called “municipal elections”. A municipality is a city, town, or village holding a charter from the state that outlines their powers. Services such as trash collection, sewer systems, parks, public buildings and transportation, police, and fire departments may be provided by a municipality. Your municipal government also determines zoning laws that divide residential and business areas and make other local decisions. There are three basic types of municipal government: mayor-council, council-manager, and commission. A town adopts the type of government that meets their needs.
