The council elects a mayor and mayor pro tempore (vice mayor) annually. The council establishes local laws, sets policy, rejects or approves programs, allocates funds, and provides direction to the city staff through the city manager. The council can also appoint members to various local and regional committees, commissions and other boards. (Residents who are interested in serving on advisory bodies can find out more information here.)
