There are five council mem-bers who are elected from the city at-large and serve two-year terms. Every year, the City Council elects one of its members to serve as mayor and mayor pro-tem. While the mayor has no veto power, the mayor retains the right to vote on all matters brought before the council. The Council appoints the City Manager, Legal Counsel, Municipal Judge, and City Secretary. The City Manager serves as the Chief Executive and Adminis-trative Officer and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the city. The Chief of Police is appointed by the City Manager and reports directly to the City Manager.
The city provides a full range of municipal services to support its residents, businesses, and visitors, which include police, fire, public works, planning and zon-ing, municipal court, parks and recreation, a municipal cemetery and general aviation airport services. Also, the City manages several parks and trails, a community center, and a swimming pool.
City services are delivered by 100 budgeted full-time employees. The city’s General Fund budget expendi-tures total $12.8 million and an adopted 2022 tax rate of $0.5693 per $100 of valuation. As of September 30, 2021, unassigned fund balance of the General Fund was $4.7million, which represents a 53% of total Gen-eral Fund expenditures.
