Mayor Charles James

Hello and welcome to the Town of Sunset’s website. More importantly, welcome to our wonderful town. Please know there is always a standing open invitation for all who would like to visit or, perhaps, who would like to resettle here.  Sunset is full of remarkable citizens with characters and personalities not found anywhere else in the country. We are committed to making Sunset a special place to live, work and visit. Whichever your choice, you will enjoy the warmth of a small town coupled with the benefits of a growing arts and antiques community -- a community that not only embraces its diverse cultural heritage, but takes every opportunity to celebrate it as well.

We strive to maintain our small town’s unique down-home style and, at the same time, we embrace new ideas and welcome growth and progress. Our vision is to meet the needs of our citizens and guests and to create an active, entertaining, and nurturing lifestyle. Our community’s foundation exists because of the efforts, dedication, and perseverance of its citizens. This continued commitment makes Sunset a great place to raise a family or run a business.

​If you are looking for a wonderful place to relocate your home or business or simply thinking about visiting, know that you will be welcomed with all the hospitality we have to offer. Please don’t hesitate to call us if we can be of service.
