"Coffee with the Council" is an opportunity to meet during an informal session with the City Council Members, Mayor and City Administrator. The meetings are held quarterly throughout the year, the last meeting was in August at the Steele County Free Fair; the next meeting will be in November.
The Mayor and City Council members are the elected leaders of the City Government. They are elected to four-year terms; the next city election will be in 2016 with election of Mayor; Council Member-at-Large, and Council Members Second Ward and Fourth Ward seats. Council Meetings are held 7:00 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month, at 540 West Hills Circle. (both August 2016 meetings have been changed to the Monday prior to the first and third Tuesday.)
The City Council makes all policy decisions in matters such as legislation, zoning, budgets and improvment projects. The Council hires the City Attorney and City Administrator, and confirms appointments to the City's Boards, Commissions, and Department Head positions.
