About the Asheville Mayor & City Council

The Asheville City Council often has a more direct impact on your daily life than Congress or the president, making decisions on such important issues as affordable housing, public transportation, crime and safety, parks and community centers, future growth of the city and more.

The Asheville City Council is composed of a mayor and six council members who are elected at-large for four-year, staggered terms. The mayor presides over City Council meetings and serves as the ceremonial head of government. The mayor does not have the power to veto council action.

The City Council determines the needs to be addressed and the degree of service to be provided by the administrative branch of city government.

Make sure you have a voice in the city's future – #voteAsheville Nov. 7!
