City Council & Mayor

Councilmembers are the city's legislators.  Their primary duty is policymaking, which includes identifying the needs of local residents, formulating programs to meet the changing requirements of the community, and measuring the effectiveness of ongoing municipal services.

Residency Requirements & Term Length
Each council member must be a resident of their district. However, the Mayor is elected at large. Terms for the council members and mayor are two years.
