Local Government & the Democratic Process
General municipal elections are held in November of even-numbered years. The next General Municipal Election will be held on Tuesday, November 5, 2024.
Members of the City Council are currently elected at-large to serve the entire community rather than by district. The Mayor is directly elected to a two-year term and the four City Council members are elected to four-year staggered terms.
