Town Government

The Town of Tryon is structured under the council-manager form of government. Town voters elect a Mayor and four Commissioners to the Board of Commissioners to govern the Town. The Board is responsible for making legislative policy decisions for the Town. The Board also has the responsibility of appointing and directing the Town Manager. In turn, the Town Manager oversees the day-to-day operations of the Town and ensures the implementation of Board policies.
The Town of Tryon operates as a full-service municipal government, meaning the Town provides a wide variety of public services to its citizens. These services include, but are not limited to police protection, fire protection, water distribution, wastewater collection, street maintenance, solid waste collection, recycling pick-up, economic development, land use planning, and parks and recreation. The Town currently employs 37 public servants.

The Board of Commissioners meet at 7PM on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Tryon Fire Department.  Meetings are open to the public.
