City Council

The City of Reidsville operates under a Council-Manager form of government. While the City Manager oversees the day-to-day operations of the City, the Reidsville City Council establishes the policies for the City of Reidsville and its residents. The City Council is composed of seven members serving four-year terms. The Mayor is an at-large seat and a voting member. In addition to two other at-large positions, there are also two District A seats and two District B seats.

The next Reidsville City Council Election for the Mayor and the two At-Large Seats will be held in 2021. These are the seats currently held by Mayor Donecker, Mayor Pro Tem Brown and Councilmember Scoble.
