Government

The progressive City of Brentwood is a fourth-class city that has instituted the City Administrator form of government.

A Mayor and an eight-member Board of Alderman compose the City’s legislative body. The City is comprised of four wards, in which two aldermen are elected to serve two-year staggered terms. The Mayor appoints alderpersons and/or citizens to serve on various boards and commissions, which cover topics such as human relations, planning and zoning, public works, insurance and many others.

A number of City departments are established to oversee various facets of community life, including economic development, planning and development, parks and recreation, streets and the library. Public safety is another important element operated by the City. The Brentwood Police Department’s success in the community is seen through the area’s noticeably low crime rate. The department employs 25 uniformed officers and six civilian officers who patrol the area and educate community members through such programs as D.A.R.E. and the National Night Out event. The City also has a Fire Department, led by a Fire Chief and a 22-member crew. Like the Police Department, the Fire Department plays an integral role in the community, regularly spreading the word of fire safety to local schools and citizens during Fire Prevention Week.
