A Welcome from the Mayor

You already know Decherd is a great place to live and work. It is home to longtime residents and new arrivals. Decherd is proud of its schools, churches, businesses and our industrial partners. We enjoy the beautiful scenic nature that surrounds us with the nearby lakes and mountains.

Our close-knit community is led by elected officials and employees that work to make sure every resident has access to all available services and resources. This website is designed to provide you with information you can use about Decherd. Here you will find everything from city department contacts to a list of places to eat and shop.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact city hall. We are here to serve you.
