Government

Farmville has a mayor-council form of government and an appointed town manager. Like all towns in Virginia, Farmville is a semi-independent political unit. Farmville is located part in Prince Edward County and part in Cumberland County. The Mayor is elected at-large and serves a four-year term. Farmville is divided into five wards, with a council member elected per ward and two council members elected at-large. A 30-member highly visible Police Department operates under the direction of a full-time chief and maintains Farmville’s low crime rate.

An elected five-member Board of Supervisors governs Cumberland County. An elected eight-member Board of Supervisors governs Prince Edward County. In both counties, police protection is provided by the well-trained sheriff’s office staff and by Virginia State Police units assigned to each county. Cumberland, Prince Edward and the Town of Farmville each have a comprehensive zoning ordinance.

Three volunteer fire departments in Cumberland and seven in Prince Edward provide fire protection. Two volunteer rescue squads operate in Cumberland. The Prince Edward County Volunteer Rescue Squad, Meherrin EMS and Pamplin EMS serve the citizens of both Farmville and Prince Edward County.
