City Council and Governance

The city council would be made up of:

  • A mayor, elected by a majority of all city voters
  • The mayor will have a vote on the council and may serve up to two consecutive terms
  • Four Council members will be elected at-large by majority from four districts as drawn by the State Reapportionment Office according to the 2020 census
  • Initially, two Council members and the Mayor would be elected for five year terms, and two Council members would be elected for three year terms, so as to stagger the terms
  • After the initial election terms, all Council members will be elected to four year terms
  • Council members must reside in their districts and the Mayor must reside in the City
  • Council members may serve up to two consecutive terms
