City Council


The City Council is the legal body of the City government and determines all matters of public policy. The Council consists of the Mayor and four Council members. Council members are elected to four year overlapping terms on an at-large basis.

The Mayor presides at all meetings of the City Council and is a voting member. The Mayor is recognized as the head of the City government for all ceremonial purposes, by the courts for the purpose of serving civil process, and by the Governor for purposes of martial law. The mayoral term is two years.

City Council meetings are scheduled for the 2nd & 4th Mondays of each month at 6 pm and are aired live on the local government access Cable Channel 16. The City Council also holds an informal work session on the 1st Monday of each month at 6 pm. No formal action is taken at the work session.
