​The Mayor and all members of the Town Council that serve the town of Nickelsville are elected by the residents of the town every four years. These elected officials carry out many duties including establishing and adhering to a town budget, acting as human resources for employees of the town, set and collect taxes and fees to sustain town operations, research requirements and secure grants and other funding for special projects for the town, and much more. In the truest sense of being a public servant, they  perform these duties for the good of the town and its citizens as they receive only a token salary.
