The City of Merritt was incorporated 1911. Over the 100+ years of incorporation, the City has grown in population, economic diversity, and the necessary public services to its residents. The range of essential, expected, and extended services for our residents is continually being evaluated and adapted to meet the requirements of a growing and progressing community.
We employ a wide range of professional staff to ensure the City of Merritt is able to provide effective services to our residents, fulfill our legal obligations to public, and maintain our community quality of life.
As a municipal government, we represent the most accessible and responsive level of government to our citizens. Our Council and staff are members of the community and strive to work with the community to learn about local government, encourage involvement in our community governance, and help build a healthy community for future generations.
