About the City Council

The City Council does not have a District or Ward system. The City Council is elected at large to serve the entire City.

The Mayor is appointed by the Council to serve as Mayor for one year. Every December, the Council holds their reorganization meeting and appoints the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem for the year. As with all boards and commissions in the city, the Council is expected to operate within a code of ethics.

City Council elections are held in November of even numbered years. The term of office for each Council Member is four years. Terms of office are staggered so in one election there will be two sets up and in the next election there will be three.

The Mayor and City Councilmembers are elected officers identified in Government Code Section 87200 and file statements of economic interests with the City Clerk's office. Copies of the statements of economic interests filed by the above elected officers may be obtained by visiting the offices of the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) or the City Clerk. The physical address of the FPPC is 428 J Street, Suite 620, Sacramento, California 95814. The physical address of the City Clerk's office is 27215 Base Line, Highland, California 92346. The statements of economic interests for some state and local government agency elected officers may be available in electronic format on the FPPC's website at (Pursuant to AB 1509)

City Council meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month. The meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. and are held in the Donahue Council Chambers at City Hall, 27215 Base Line. The City contracts with the law firm of Richards, Watson & Gershon to assist with legal matters affecting the City. The City does not provide or recommend an attorney for citizens to meet with and discuss their own personal legal matters. However, citizens can contact a lawyer referral service at (909) 945-2980, and a qualified member of the State Bar of California can assist you.
