City Council

City Council is the legislative body comprised of five members who are elected by the voters. These elections are non-partisan and each Council member is elected for a four-year term. The Mayor is selected annually by the vote of fellow Council members and serves as chairperson of the Council. The Mayor has no veto power over Council actions and no independent administrative authority.  City Council meets twice a month, the second Wednesday, at 7:30 p.m., of each month (Regular Meeting) and the fourth Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., of each month (Study Session).  All meetings are at the Community Center and open to the public. The next election for City Council is November 2018.
