Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - City Council Meeting
The Mayor is elected separately from the Council, so candidates for Mayor do not run against candidates for the council seats. The Mayoral office limits successive terms of service to three terms, the equivalent of six years of continuous service. The person elected Mayor presides over all meetings of the City Council. The Mayor has a vote on all matters coming before the Council unless otherwise disqualified and is the official head of the City government.
Every two years, all four council seats are open for election. No Councilmember may serve for more than three successive terms, the equivalent of six years of continuous service. Councilmembers are expected to attend regular Council Meetings and to serve as liaisons to various advisory committees. Each Councilmember has an equal vote on all action taken by the Council.
Home Rule Charter Requirements: (City Charter Chapter 3, Sec. 3.02)
Each Councilmember and the Mayor must continually reside within the City during the term of office, and any removal of residence from the City during the term shall constitute a vacation of the office.
