The City Council is comprised of a mayor and four members elected at-large and serve for four-year terms. Council members served staggered terms.
The City Council enacts ordinances and resolutions, adopts an annual budget, establishes the tax levy and otherwise takes such actions as are "necessary for the security, welfare, convenience and interest of the City." The authority and duties of the Council are delineated in the City Charter.
The City Council meets regularly on the second Monday of each month in sessions open to the public. The meetings begin at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
These elected officials are private citizens from all walks of life. Not only are they residents of our city, but they are also willing public servants who take very seriously their roles as representatives of our community. Take a moment to meet the Mayor and members of our City Council.
