We are a diverse and unique community of forward-thinking people who believe in the equal opportunity of all our citizens to enjoy our special quality of life. It therefore is the mission of the Niles City Council to promote this equality, this diversity, and this uniqueness through its policies and leadership.
There are 7 city departments. Each department is overseen by a department manager. Managers coordinate their activities with the city administrator, who is responsible for the overall daily operations of the city. Each department has specific functions. You'll see that under each department name some of the functions that are completed by that department are listed. The number of divisions within a department is based upon the areas of responsibility that each department manager oversees. All departments work together to provide residential and business services.
Niles is known as "The City of Four Flags" because four nations have controlled the area at different points in its 300-year history. This history is evident not only in the City's pride in being the oldest community in Michigan, but also in the neighborhoods, museums, downtown, and antique shops.
