The City is governed by a council of five members. Regular meetings of the council are held the second Wednesday of the month, unless otherwise posted. The mayor presides at all meetings. A special meeting may be called by the mayor or acting mayor on written request of any three members of the council, specifying the object and purpose of the meeting. This request is read at the meeting and entered at length in the minutes. In all cases, it requires a majority of the council members to constitute a quorum to do business. When the council is equally divided, the mayor casts the deciding vote.

We have made quality our habit. It’s not something that we just strive for – we live by this principle every day. To protect that quality, there are many ordinances which help guide the way.
