Mayor and City Council

The City of Dunwoody has a Council-Manager form of government. There are six Council Members and one Mayor who make up the Council as a whole. Each member of council represents one of three districts in Dunwoody. Posts 1, 2, and 3 are positions that are voted upon by citizens from within the district the Council Member will be representing. Posts 4, 5, and 6 are elected by the city at-large, with each Council Member being elected to represent a given district. Elections are held on a 4-year cycle and are staggered, with only half of the Council coming up for vote in any given cycle.

The Dunwoody City Council Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. They are generally held on the second and fourth Mondays of every month, barring holidays. These meetings provide opportunities for public comment and to share your thoughts, opinions, and suggestions with the Mayor and Council.

These meetings are where much of the City’s business is decided so it is an excellent way to stay in touch with local projects, events, and initiatives. If you cannot make it to a meeting, the city live streams City Council meetings as they happen, which can be accessed through the agendas and minutes page. The agendas and minutes page also includes archived copies of past meetings along with meeting minutes, summaries, and agendas.
