The City Council is the legislative and policy-making body of the city. It is composed of six residents who are elected at large. The mayor, who is independently elected, is the presiding officer.
The responsibilities of the City Council include:
In early 2017, City Council began the creation of a new Strategic Plan. Council worked over the course of several months with an experienced consultant to develop a strategic vision, and city staff presented research on the elements of this strategic vision in the form of Policy Briefs in November 2017. In February of 2018, community members chosen by Council began working in volunteer groups to define action steps and provide perspective on Council-created goals.
The City Council's 2026 Vision Statement is available for review, as well as the revised Strategic Plan 2013-2015, adopted July 18, 2013. Also available for review is the Economic Development Plan 2013-2015.
