The Town of Signal Mountain has a Council/ Manager form of government. In February 1990 a Town Council, composed of 5 members, was formed. The five member Town Council is elected by the voters with three of the five members running every two years on even numbered years, matching the national elections. Of the three top vote getters every two years, two receive four-year terms and one (the third place finisher) receives a two-year term. This guarantees that three members of the Council will be up for election every two years. The Mayor and the Vice-Mayor are selected from among the Council members. The Mayor presides at Council meetings and otherwise provides leadership for the Council and the Town. The Vice-Mayor acts as Mayor in the Mayor's absence.
Monthly meeting schedule:
The Council has a number of advisory boards composed of volunteers who are interested in serving their community. They include the Planning Commission, Recreation Advisory Board, Library Board, Parks Board, Design Review Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, and Condemnation Board. The Planning Commission, with staff support supplied by the Chattanooga/Hamilton County Planning Staff and the Signal Mountain Town Manager, is responsible for reviewing subdivision plats, rezoning recommendations to the Council, annexations, and long-range planning.
