Following each election and after the newly elected members of Council are sworn in, the Council selects a Mayor and Vice Mayor from among its members to serve for a two-year term.

Council Standing Committees

 
The City Council currently has two standing committees which are the Finance Committee and Internal Affairs Committee, each comprised of three Councilmembers. These two committees delve into items referred to them for review and possible recommendations.  Recommendations are then forwarded back to the full Council for consideration and possible action.
