Governing a Community
Fuquay-Varina is governed by a Board of Commissioners (comprised of a Mayor and five Commissioners). A Town Manager is appointed as the Town’s administrator, responsible for carrying out the policies set by the governing body in administrating all affairs of the municipal government.
At-large elections are in November of odd-numbered years. The Mayor is elected for a two-year term and Commissioners to four-year terms on a staggered basis.
The Town Board of Commissioners meets at 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of each month and on the Tuesday after the third Monday in the Fuquay-Varina Town Hall (401 Old Honeycutt Road). Visit www.fuquay-varina.org for comprehensive information about Town events, meetings and services.
A Letter From the Mayor of Fuquay-Varina
Tree lined streets, neighborhood schools, festivals, community parks, and historic homes. These are just a few features that make Fuquay-Varina a special town.
Fuquay-Varina is located in the garden spot of Wake County and the path of progress of the Research Triangle Park, and is changing with every passing day.
Our town is working hard to provide services that help make our quality of life better in Fuquay-Varina. Ongoing services are provided on a daily basis through sound decisions and strong commitments from both the Town Board of Commissioners and town staff. Economic development, education, traffic control, police, fire, rescue, public works, public utilities, engineering, planning, parks and recreation, are all part of the big picture.
The Fuquay-Varina Area Chamber of Commerce plays a vital role in our community. The Chamber of Commerce works closely with all aspects of the community in providing partnership and leadership on issues that will impact our community. Partnership takes place when issues are positively addressed on efforts that benefit both parties. The leadership and partnership that the Chamber provides is most important. It is a reflection of the whole community and the direction that the Chamber membership strives for.
The Town of Fuquay-Varina works closely with the Chamber’s leadership, Andrew Tate, Executive Director and Ann Marie Amico, 2005 President, because they always have the community’s best interest at heart. I am pleased with the efforts of the Chamber of Commerce and look forward to always working with them, to continue to make Fuquay-Varina a very special place.
Mayor John Byrne
