City Council

The City Council, composed of nine individuals elected at-large on a non-partisan basis, is the governing body of the City and is responsible for establishing overall policy, adopting an annual budget, and providing general oversight to the City's operations. Councilors are elected to three-year terms with three positions on the Council up for election each year in November. Once elected, Councilors are limited to three consecutive three-year terms. Immediately following election in November, the Council selects one of its members to serve as Council Chair for the year. The Council Chair serves as Mayor and represents the City at ceremonial events and in its interactions with State and Federal governments.
