The town of Apex was incorporated in 1873, named for its location as the highest point on a portion of the Chatham Railraod which ultimatley extends between Richmond, VA and Jacksonville,FL. After a devastating fire in 1911, the town center was rebuilt and stands to this day, now Apex is one of the most intact railroad towns in the state.
The town's proximity to North Carolina's Research Triangle Park spurred additional residential development, yet the town managed to preserve its small-town character. During the 1990s, the town's population quadrupled to over 20,000, placing new demands upon Apex' infastructure. Apex has continued to grow in recent years. A sizable shopping center was built at the intersection of Highway 55 and US 64, and several new neighborhoods have been built as the town grows toward the west.
Apex consists of a Council-Manager form of government is comprised of a mayor and five council members (one of whom serves as Mayor Pro Tempore). The members are each elected at-large in staggered four-year terms. The town's attorney and manager serve at the pleasure of the council. All other staff report to the town manager and manage the town's day-to-day business.
