Responsibilities

As the elected representatives of the people, City Councilmembers comprise the policy-making body of the City. The Council is composed of 6 members and the Mayor. Though voting equally with the other 6 members of the Council, the Mayor is the presiding officer at Council meetings and is the official representative of the City. 2 Councilmembers are elected from each council ward on staggered 4-year terms. The Mayor's position, a 4-year term, is elected at large.

The City is comprised of three council wards and 24 voting precincts. Elections are held each August and November in even-numbered years. The Councilmembers, as a body, implement all policies exclusively through the City Manager and, as individuals, neither perform nor interfere with any of the administrative work themselves.
