The Board of Aldermen

The Dyer Board of Aldermen are elected to four year terms with four aldermen being elected every 2 years. The Board of Aldermen are the legislative and policy making body for the City — the “Board of Directors” for the City. They approve certain purchases, approve the annual budget, authorize the hiring of new employees, and pass laws through the amendment of the Municipal Code via ordinance. The City Board meets each 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at 7:00 at City Hall.

City Charter & Code

The City Charter is like the constitution of the City. It is approved by the Tennessee General Assembly. Changes are made on request of the Board of Aldermen. The Municipal Code is “local law” and covers everything from traffic laws to animal control to utility policies. Changes to the municipal code are made by ordinance; ordinances must be approved twice before coming into effect.
