Local Government

One of the nice things about a small town is that the government isn’t isolated. The folks up at City Hall aren’t remote bureaucrats – they’re your neighbors.

Heck, the Mayor probably lives right down the street.

But make no mistake – just because Albion is a small town doesn’t mean we do things small-time. Government at all levels – local, county, and state – must move faster and respond more efficiently in this age of speed and service. It’s something you should expect everywhere, and we’re making it happen here.

Albion was established by settlers from New York at the forks of the Kalamazoo River in 1835. The government of the city has evolved from pioneer beginnings into a modern City Manager/City Council form.

City offices and officials listed below may be reached at City Hall unless otherwise noted.
