City Council

The government of Lenoir City is based upon the Mayor-Alderman form of government. This form of government was established in 1907 when the City was re-incorporated into what is now known as the modern City of Lenoir City.

The City is governed by a seven member Board of Mayor and Aldermen, elected at-large and on a non-partisan basis for four-year staggered terms. The exception to this rule is that the Mayor is elected at-large for a two year term. Elections are held in November, the first Tuesday of the month, during even numbered years.

The current board of Mayor and Aldermen is composed of the following: Mayor: Tony R. Aikens, Council members: Mike Henline, Douglas "Buddy" Hines, Bobby Johnson, Sr., Jim Shields, Eddie Simpson, and Harry Wampler.
