Office of the Mayor
Lancaster City is just small enough that it is possible to actually visit with the Mayor and share your concerns (and praise as the case may be). First you will need to find out when the Mayor is available. To do so, call his secretary at (717) 291-4701.
"...What is the dream we pursue? To make Lancaster a City with the best quality of life for families; a City that welcomes new businesses and helps them grow; a City that embraces and values diversity; and a City that is 'green', clean, and safe." - J. Richard Gray, Mayor, City of Lancaster
