City Government


At the helm of Fallon's government is the Mayor, who works closely with the elected legislative branch—the three-member City Council. Because Fallon uniquely provides for its residents various utilities, the Mayor also serves as Chief Executive Officer of those enterprises—electricity, landfill, sanitation, sewer, water and water treatment.

The Mayor oversees the six municipal departments:

Police
City Attorney
Emergency Management
City Clerk / Treasurer
Public Works / City Engineering
Municipal Court

Unlike most cities, which are chartered by their state legislature, Fallon operates under the Nevada Revised Statutes' Chapter 266: "General Law for Incorporation of Cities and Towns." This arrangement allows city officials greater governmental autonomy.
