Government

The City of St. Joseph is dedicated to providing quality services to its residents through cooperation between individuals, neighborhoods, and businesses to create a healthy, vibrant community for residents and visitors.

The City of St. Joseph has a council-manager form of government, wherein the City Manager runs the day-to-day operation of the city and oversees all city departments, while the Mayor and eight other members of the City Council make laws and vote on policy and budget matters. Members of the Council are elected for four-year terms and serve on a part-time basis.

In 1989, the city charter was amended by a vote of the people to divide the city into five districts and three at-large representatives, to allow for closer relations between the community and government departments.
