City Council

The City Council plays a pivotal role as the legislative heart of the city, functioning as a bridge between the citizens and the municipal mechanisms that shape their daily lives. Comprising seven elected officials, the Council is segmented into four ward-specific councilpersons and three at-large members. This structure ensures that all areas of the city are represented, allowing for a balanced perspective on the needs and priorities of different communities within the city.

Council meetings, which convene twice a month, are a cornerstone of local governance. They serve as a platform for passing ordinances and resolutions that directly impact the community, from infrastructure projects and public safety measures to environmental policies and community welfare programs. These gatherings are not just a duty but a demonstration of democratic engagement, providing a transparent window into the workings of city management.

Importantly, these meetings are open to the public, and the participation of community members is highly encouraged. This inclusivity fosters a collaborative environment where citizens can express their concerns, propose ideas, and provide feedback directly to their elected representatives. By attending these meetings, residents can stay informed about city affairs, contribute to decision-making processes, and ensure their voices are heard, reinforcing the foundations of community-oriented governance.

Join us monthly, on the second and fourth Monday at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Building.
