The municipality of Jbail-Byblos is one of the first municipalities in Lebanon. It was founded in 1879 after the government canceled disposed Rustem Pasha patronage system, and the Mutasarrif united the members of the municipal council for the first time in Byblos. They were:

- Ayoub Nakhleh.

- Tannous Al Tawileh.

- Deeb Bassil.

- Omar Chedid Al Housami.

- Hanna Nakhleh Al Sayyad.

 Then, the following Mayors ruled the municipality:

- Khalil Bassil.

- Youwakim Nakhleh.

- Edward al Sayyad

- Dr. Gebrayel Attawileh

- Dr. Antoine Al Shami.

- Ibrahim Zaarour.

- Georges Harb.

- Dr. Antoine Al Shami for a second term.

- Jean-Louis Kordahi.

- Rafael Sfeir.

- Gina Kallab

- Dr. Joseph Al Shami.

- Ziad Hawat.

The municipal councils has been moved from a location to another across the city, the reason that pushed the mayor Hawat and the municipal board to build a municipal town hall that acts like a bridge between the different parts and periods of Byblos: The city’s archeological heritage is reflected in the abstract stereotomic volumes. Its old, vernacular architecture is present in the simplicity of the building's volumes and in their intimate relationship with the landscape.
