City Council


600 Sixth St, Lincoln, CA 95648

(916) 434-2400

In early 2020, the Lincoln City Council unanimously voted to change to district elections and adopted Ordinance 10004B, which dictated that council seats in Districts 3, 4 and 5 would be in play for the November general election. The seats in Districts 1 and 2 will be up for grabs in 2022, but the city will go through the re-districting process again once the 2020 Census is complete. The city has no term limits and no campaign contribution limits. The mayor is appointed every year on a rotational basis by the council.

Meetings: The council meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month at 6 p.m. at Lincoln City Hall, 600 Sixth St, unless meetings are held virtually. The public is encouraged to attend.
