About Us

City of Cambridge

Our Origin

Prior to the incorporation of the City of Cambridge, the majority of City properties were known as Westfield Subdivision. Likewise, we are bound to certain deed restrictions, "Restrictions Westfield Subdivision", which outline restrictions concerning buildings on properties, property usage, nuisances, fences, trailers, tents, garages, heating units, driveways and a few other items. These deed restrictions are enforceable by residents, neighbor to neighbor. Copies of the deed restrictions are available to City residents upon request.

City of Cambridge

The City of Cambridge was incorporated on September 21, 1953. City Residents elect a Mayor and four Commissioners. These individuals are currently "elected volunteers" as no Mayor or Commissioner receives a salary for these positions. The benefits of being our own City include the ability to set our own City taxes and create City Ordinances. City Ordinances are enforceable by the City's Board of Commissioners. The City also creates a annual budget and utilizes income to pay for sanitation pickup and road maintenance, which are the two major budget expenses. Other expenses include minor landscaping and the costs to have a City Treasurer and City Clerk, both of whom are essential to the smooth operation of our City. The annual budget and new ordinances are mailed to residents at the time of their passage. If you would like a copy of a particular Ordinance, please let us know.

Be Involved

City meetings are held every first Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the McMahon Fire Station on Taylorsville Road. Typically there is no meeting in December and occasionally the Board of Commissioners will decide to cancel a meeting if there are no pressing issues to discuss. City meetings are always open to the public and we invite you to attend. Also please contact the Mayor or one of the Commissioners should you have a suggestion, question, or issue you would like to raise. As always, thank you for keeping the City of Cambridge such a friendly and safe place to live.
