The City has operated under the Commission-Manager form of government since its incorporation on December 31, 1995. This form of government consists of the Mayor, a six-member City Commission and a professional City Manager. Residents elect a Mayor who represents the City at-large and six Commission members who each represent a specific district of the community.
Elected officials serve staggered terms and are chosen in non-partisan elections. The Mayor and Commission are responsible for the legislative and policy direction functions of City Government. The City Manager serves as the Chief Administrative Officer of the City. This position oversees the day-to-day operations of the City and reports directly to the elected body comprised of the Mayor and Commission.
