Peachtree Corners is organized under a council-manager form of municipal government which divides responsibilities between elected officials and an appointed city manager. Fifty-three percent (53%) of municipalities with a population between 5,000 and 249,999 residents are governed under the council-manager structure (2,903 out of 5,462).
While the city manager functions as the “chief executive officer” for this municipal corporation, the mayor and city council function as its “board of directors.” As such, they set policy, approve the financing of all city operations, enact local ordinances and develop an overall vision. Their responsibilities also include appointing the city manager and members of various boards and commissions.
The city council is chaired by the mayor who is elected at-large and consists of six councilmembers – three who represent geographical districts (Posts 1, 2, and 3), and three who are elected at-large (Posts 4, 5, and 6). The mayor and councilmembers serve staggered four-year terms.
