Government Structure
The City is governed by a modified City Manager-Council form of government. The governing body of the City is a seven member City Council. Approximately, half of the City Council is elected on a non-partisan basis every two years for a four-year term of office. Following each regular City election, the City Council elects one of its members as Mayor to serve for a two-year period as ceremonial head of the City and presiding officer of the City Council. The City Council appoints the City Manager, who is the chief administrative officer of the City. The City Manager appoints all other City employees except the City Attorney who is appointed by City Council.
