The Town of Waynesville is organized under the Council-Manager form of government, consistent with N.C.G.S. 160A-147, Part 2. The Town Manager, appointed by the Board of Aldermen, oversees the day-to-day operations of the Town and the implementation of policy as directed by the Board. Employing a Town Manager frees elected officials to provide leadership, develop a vision for the community, determine what services to provide citizens, lobby the state legislature on the community’s behalf, and communicate and forge new relationships with constituents.
