Mayor’s Message...

When the City of Mountain Brook was founded in 1942, there was one fundamental reason behind that incorporation – to provide the basic services needed to maintain a productive, healthy lifestyle in the community.  Seventy years later, that principle still resonates the philosophy of your mayor, city council, administrators and civil servants, each of whom works diligently to ascertain that the residents’ needs are adequately served.  Your city officials are aware of the need for current information to keep our residents informed about what is going on in the City.  Using the most current technology available in delivering that information has been our goal.  Therefore, we are proud to announce that we have developed a new website to enable us to accomplish this goal.

Our website is the product of the efforts of those whom serve the residents of our city.  As you will see when you visit the website, their creativeness has resulted in a website that we can all be proud of.  So, when you want to know about our city and those who serve you, that information is only a mouse click away!

Your mayor,

Stewart Welch
