City Board of Directors

The City of Arkadelphia is governed by a 7-member Board of Directors, with representation from each of the five city wards and two at-large positions, mayor and vice-mayor.

The Board meets the first and third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Town Hall Board Room to conduct business. Following each meeting, residents may share concerns during an open community forum.

Directors serve for a four-year term and may be re-elected by the citizens of their ward during official elections which are held every two years. To maintain continuity, terms are staggered.
