Historical Event for the City of Villa Rica !!

On Tuesday, March 8, 2018 at approximately 9:15 am, Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 1031 enacting a new City Charter for Villa Rica. The City Council voted unanimously to approve the new Charter in February of this year just in time for the legislators, whose 40 day session began in January. This is a historical event for the City of Villa Rica. The last City Charter was enacted in 1975 - 43 Years Ago!

The City Charter serves as the foundational governing document for the city, much as the U.S. Constitution lays the framework for national government. It specifies how the city government functions and outlines the powers of key officials, including the mayor, council members and the city manager
