The Town of Farragut was incorporated on Jan. 16, 1980, with the first Board of Mayor and Aldermen elected on April 1, 1980. Controls on zoning, building codes, and signage, as well as major improvements to roads, have been important aspects of the Town. A sincere commitment to these controls, plus the development of parks, green space, pedestrian links, and leisure opportunities make this community a great place to live and work.
Board of Mayor and Aldermen
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen adopts Town ordinances and policies, approves comprehensive planning and zoning requirements, approves annual budgets, approves Town contracts, and reviews capital improvement projects. The board is also responsible for the appointment of citizen committees and the Town Administrator, Town Attorney and Municipal Judge.
Each year in June, the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen appoints citizens to serve on advisory committees, councils and boards. This is a great way for citizens to share time, talents and enthusiasm with the Farragut community. Please note--these are working committees. Applicants should be willing to give time to monthly meetings and committee projects or events.
