MAYOR & COUNCIL

MAYOR & COUNCIL

 

The Canton City Council sets all policies for the City including fiscal and administrative policy. The councilmembers' terms of office are for four years. Elections occur every two years so terms are staggered. The current Mayor Pro Tem is Jo Ellen Wilson; she takes on the role of mayor when Mayor Grant is absent. All wards are city-at-large positions with geographic residency requirements. 

The governing body of the City of Canton is the City Council that establishes local law and policies through the enactment of ordinances and resolutions. Regular City Council meetings are held at 6 p.m. on the first and third Thursday each month at Canton City Hall located at 110 Academy Street. The City Council may postpone or cancel any meeting as deemed necessary.
