Meet Our Staff

Providing strong leadership and a high level of quality services is a top priority for the City of Norcross. We believe our job is to make your city a great place to raise a family, start a business, live a healthy lifestyle, and get to know your neighbors. Our city offers comprehensive services including community development and planning, police, public works, parks, economic development, tourism and cultural arts, solid waste collection and recycling, municipal court, and other administrative services. Staff is committed to providing excellent customer service, and with City Hall located just six minutes from the proposed annexation area, it is a convenient place to do business.

Meet Our Elected Officials

One of the benefits of joining a city is having elected officials who are responsible for a smaller area and focused on serving the residents and businesses in their own community. Our city is represented by a mayor and a five-member council. All council members are elected at large, meaning they represent the entire city rather than specific neighborhoods. Click here to learn more about our representatives and see a calendar of upcoming council meetings and policy work sessions, which are open to the public.

If you live or work in the proposed annexation area, you are already part of the Norcross community and have probably spent time in our city. We hope you love it as much as we do! 

There is always something happening in Norcross. You can visit our local restaurants and shops, relax in one of our parks, or join the fun at events like our First Friday Concert Series, the Gateway International Festival, or the Norcross Community Market.
