The Sierra Nevada resort town of South Lake Tahoe attracts both adrenaline seekers and nature lovers year-round with outdoor pursuits and pristine beauty. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, golfing, boating—every day looks like a Lands’ End photo shoot. Indoors, the five-member city council—three councilmembers, a mayor, and a mayor pro tem – take care of civic business affecting the roughly 22,00 citizens.

City Council

Five councilmembers, elected at large for four-year staggered terms, govern the city. The city clerk and treasurer are also elected by voters. Races for these positions are held in November of even-numbered years.
