Wentworth Town Council is comprised of five Council members and a Mayor. Members are elected “at large” in nonpartisan elections for four year terms. The terms are staggered to insure continuity on the Council. The Mayor and Council make decisions and set policy to insure the health and safety of our citizens and to promote the economic and social well-being of the community.
Town Council meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month in the Town Hall located at 124 Peach Tree Road. You are urged to attend these meetings and exercise your right to participate in the process of representative government. The Town Council would appreciate your support and hope that you will attend often. Remember, democracy cannot endure without an informed electorate.
