• Your Town Government

  • Local governments perform functions and provide services which are most used by and of most concern to residents - public safety (police protection), recreation (enrichment programs), maintenance (roadways and parks), and traffic management.  Cities elect council members to guide public spending, ensure service delivery and preserve their community's character through careful and thoughtful planning. 

    To carry out its policies, the Town Council appoints the following:

     

    Town Manager

    The Town Manager is the chief advisor to the Town Council and the community's professional administrator, responsible for all day-to-day operations and service delivery. To help manage the organization, the Town Manager appoints a team of department heads who are responsible for the management of the Town's departments - Finance, Police, Community Development, Development Services, Maintenance, and Recreation.

     

    City Attorney

    The City Attorney is the legal advisor to the Town Council and staff, providing general legal advice on Town business, representing the Town in legal actions, handling property transactions, supervising assessment district proceedings and preparing ordinances, contracts, resolutions and opinions.

     

    Advisory Commissioners

    Advisory commissioners serve as advisors to the Town Council.  Commissions were established to research and discuss community issues and make recommendations to the Town Council.  Danville is served by five standing commissions/committees.
