Representing the people of Headland, government leads the city into the future
Just as Headland is a progressive city, its mayor and city council are constantly working to measure progress with quality of life.
Mayor Ray Marler is in his first term as mayor after serving four years in the city council. Council Veterans John Glover, district one, and Benton Beasley, district four, are joined by new members Jody Singleton, district two; John Mellown, district three; and Kendrick Spurling, district five. Together they weigh the decisions that affect the business and social concerns of the city, and the lives of Headland’s residents.
The council meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6 p.m. in the council chambers of the city hall, 9 Park Street. The public is welcome and invited to attend and take an active part.

Our current city clerk is Crystal Gibson. The City Clerk has many duties within City government. Working directly with the Mayor and City Council, the clerk acts as the secretary of the governing body; preparing meeting agendas, attending all meetings of the governing body and preparing minutes of each meeting. The Clerk is custodian of all the minutes, books, deeds, bonds, contracts, ordinances, resolutions and archival records. Other responsibilities of the City Clerk are business license, building permits, zoning requirements, and human resource issues. Every four years the Clerk serves as the chief administrative officer in all elections held in the municipality. Of all these jobs and responsibilities the greatest for any City Clerk is to serve the public.
