The City of Cumming is a municipal corporation duly organized in the State of Georgia. It is governed by a Mayor and a five-member Council who are elected city-wide by Post, each serving 4-year terms. Municipal elections are held on a staggered schedule every two years with the offices of Mayor and Council Posts 1 and 2 being held together and Council Posts 3, 4 and 5 being held together.

The Town of Cumming was first charted by the State of Georgia in 1834, and in 1845 a second charter was issued designating The City of Cumming as Mayor and Council form of government.

The Mayor and City Council hold monthly Work Sessions and Regular Meetings at Cumming City Hall, 100 Main Street. Work Sessions are held every 1st Tuesday of the month in Gallery B (Second Floor) and Regular Meetings are held every 3rd Tuesday of the month in the Council Chambers (Third Floor).

Youth Council

The City of Cumming Youth Council is comprised of nine student members – seven from Forsyth Central High School and two from the Alliance Academy for Innovation, the two public high schools located within the Cumming City Limits. The mission of the Youth Council is to “provide local youth with the experience of working with city government while obtaining a sense of civic responsibility, as well as the opportunity to develop and demonstrate leadership skills.” The Youth Council acts as an advisory board to the Cumming City Council.

Cumming City Center

The Cumming City Center is the vision of Mayor Troy Brumbalow, who heavily promoted the idea of creating the Center during his 2017 mayoral campaign in order to bring back some of the small-town charm that had been lost in downtown Cumming over the years, while establishing a new community gathering place. He immediately  went to work to make the project a reality after he was sworn into office in January of 2018. Ground was broken on the City Center site, 75 acres located between Canton Highway and Sawnee Drive to the west of downtown Cumming, in August of 2019, and the expected opening of the facility is fall of 2021. Click here for more information about the Cumming City Center.

City Hall

The first city hall was a small building located on the northeast corner of the courthouse grounds, near the historic bandstand. During the early years, it served mainly as a Police and Fire station. In 1974, a new city hall was built at 301 Veterans Memorial Blvd. the facility that now houses the Cumming Police Department.

In 2002, debt free upon completion, the current City Hall located at 100 Main Street opened its doors to the public.

Due to the frugal financial management of the City of Cumming and by order of the Mayor and Council, there have been no city property taxes excised since 1986.
