The Town of Zebulon has a rich history and wonderful staff.


The Town of Zebulon is located in eastern Wake County, 16 miles east of Raleigh and 25 miles east of the Raleigh-Durham Airport (RDU).  Surrounding municipalities are Wendell, five miles southwest, and Knightdale, 10 miles west.


Zebulon is governed by a council-manager form of government. The Town government consists of a mayoral position and a five-person nonpartisan Board of Commissioners, all of which are elected. All Board positions, including the mayoral position, serve on the basis of four-year terms. The mayoral position is currently held by Bob Matheny. Matheny was first elected in 1994 and continues to serve in this position.

The Board of Commissioners holds the legislative decision-making power for the Town and is also responsible for hiring a town manager and the municipality’s legal representation. The Town Manager is tasked with the day-to-day operations of the Town. Joe Moore is the current town manager, and has held this position since 2015
