About Your City Government: The City of Dunwoody operates under a council-manager form of government. The Dunwoody City Council is comprised of a mayor and six council members elected by the people on a nonpartisan ballot for four year terms.

The Mayor is elected at large; Council Members are elected by voters in each of the three separate districts they represent. The terms for Council Members from District Local 1, District Local 2 and District Local 3 expired in January 2018, while terms for the Council Members from District 1 At Large, District 2 At Large and District 3 At Large, including the Mayor, expire in January 2016.

The Mayor and Council serve as the legislative and policy making body of the municipal government. Together they enact city, ordinances, appropriate funds to conduct city business and provide policy direction to the administrative staff.

The City Manager works closely with the Mayor and Council to assist them in formulating policies and programs. Overseeing all city employees, the City Manager is responsible for the efficient ongoing operation of all city services as set forth by the City Council.
