Your Mayor and City Council are an active, elected body of government responsible for legislation and policy-making for the City. The Mayor and three at-large Council Members are elected by all voters; three ward Council Members represent and are elected by voters in specific geographical districts. Together, they adopt City ordinances, appoint members to boards and commissions, and approve an annual City budget.
The City Council appoints the City Manager, City Clerk, Comptroller and City Attorney. The City Manager serves as the City's Chief Administrative Officer. Except for the purpose of inquiries, the City Council addresses administrative services through the City Manager.
The Mayor has additional responsibilities as the official head of the City, representing the City at various government functions on a local, state and national basis.
