Under the Mayor-Council-Manager form of government, the citizens elect a Mayor at-large from the community.  Local elections are held the first Tuesday in April, but the mayoral election only occurs in odd years.  

The Mayor presides at all City Council meetings and has a tie-breaking vote when the members present are equally divided. The Mayor is also has the power to approve or veto any ordinance, subject to an override of the Council.  The Mayor is also responsible for:
  • Signing official documents on behalf of the City;
  • Signing the commissions and appointments of all elected and appointed officials;
  • Representing the City at ceremonies and meetings
  • Making recommendations to the City Council
