The Mayor is elected at-large to a four-year term of office and serves as the City’s chief administrative officer. The Mayor is responsible for seeing that the laws and ordinances are enforced. The Mayor attends and presides over City Council meetings, but does not vote except in the case of a tie.

The Mayor is assisted in all of his duties by the City Administrator and Deputy City Administrator.
