Every two years, council members are elected at large to serve four-year, overlapping terms. The Mayor is selected by the Council and serves a one-year term.
The City Manager is appointed by the City Council. The City Manager ensures that the Citys policies are implemented and supervises the Citys 600 full and part-time employees through various department heads.
Advisory boards, comprising of community members appointed by the Council, provide guidance in determining how to meet the Citys needs. These boards include the Planning Commission and the Community Resources Advisory Commission.
