The City of Millersville was chartered as a municipal corporation, under the provisions of Title 6 of Tennessee Code Annotated, in 1981. The City operates under the City Manager-Commission form of government.
The five member City Commission is the City’s legislative body. The City Manager is appointed by the Commission and acts as Chief Executive Officer. Through his staff, he implements policies established by the Commission.
The five Commissioners, all elected at large, serve four year terms of office. The terms are staggered with elections for two or three commissioners every two years. Millersville city elections are held on the November General Election date. For more election information, see “Residents/Election Information/Upcoming Elections”.
The Mayor and Vice Mayor are elected from the commission membership during the first meeting following an election, thus forming the “Board of Commissioners”.
