About the City Government

The City of Pelham operates under a Mayor-Council form of government. This form of government most closely resembles the private sector with the Mayor serving as the Chief Executive Officer and the Council as the Board of Directors. The Council elects a president and president pro tempore to preside over the council meetings. The Mayor is in charge of day-to-day operations of the city. He is not a voting member of the council.

The Mayor and City Council Members are elected at large for four-year terms. The municipal election was held in 2016. All residents vote at the Pelham Civic Complex for municipal elections.


The Mayor and City Council work as a team with the City of Pelham employees to provide the public with:

  • A safe community in which to live and work
  • Services delivered courteously and professionally
  • Fiscal responsibility with accountability
  • Convenient opportunities for recreation

The elected officials and employees recognize that if they accomplish these goals the City of Pelham will always be a desirable place in which to live and work.
