The Town of Kenansville is governed by a Manager / Board of Commissioners form of Government. The spending agencies submit their requests to the Town Manager & Clerk and Board of Finance who then bring a budget proposal to the Commissioners. The Commissioners then review and adopt the budget setting the town property tax rate.

Message from the Mayor

Kenansville is a small, quaint town. This is a natural progression of the years and population growth. That it is a nice place to live, and even more so in the last five years, is because elected officials have worked hard to ensure that the Town remains fiscally responsible, that we listen to what the residents want but we make our decisions based on what is best for the long term good of the Town and avoid knee-jerk reactions to hot topics. We have tried to make it more business friendly, but small businesses, ones that fit into the pattern of the town and don’t overwhelm it.
