Duties of the Mayor

In the City of Jonesboro, the Mayor has several duties.

Chief among these is the responsibility to manage the everyday activities of the City Administration. In a very real sense, the Mayor is the ‘CEO’ of the City. He keeps the City financially secure, makes sure essential city services are maintained, and is always working to provide for the future. Along with the top-level management, the Mayor is responsible for ensuring the policies and directions of the City Council are implemented.

The Mayor is also the presiding officer of the City Council. The Mayor manages the City Council agenda, and presides over its meetings.

In addition to all his other duties, the Mayor is also our ambassador. He is our head cheerleader, and our representative to the world. He spends time working with other officials at the State and Federal level, representing the needs of Jonesboro and working to garner support for the City’s programs.
