Create your future. Shape your world.
Community members choose to live in the Richmond and Wayne County areas because it is a good place to raise a family, to start a business and to call home.
From early beginnings as a Friends settlement, Richmond has grown into a diverse population of residents who value the community’s quality of life. For more information about this Quaker history, read the article "A Quaker Crossroads (pdf)."
The local government of Richmond manages many services for the community. Some of these services include:
The City of Richmond government consists of nine, voter-elected, Common Council members who represent the six districts of Richmond plus three at-large members. Common Council forms the legislative body and is responsible for setting laws. The Council's members work closely with the mayor and city administration, ensuring taxpayer money is well spent.
The mayor of Richmond, elected by popular vote, oversees executive and administrative duties, city departments and local public services. The mayor appoints the departments heads who manage the 11 departments. Common Council and mayoral appointments hold a four-year term and can be re-elected indefinitely.
Richmond's current mayor is Sally L. Hutton.
