Meet the Mayor and Council.


The Office of the Mayor and five City Councilmembers comprise the City Council. The Mayor presides over the City Council meeting held twice a month in open public session in the Council Chamber. 

The City Council is a five-member governmental body that is elected from the geographic boundaries of each of their wards. (View Ward Map [PDF].) Its duties under the City Charter include approval of the Annual Budget and oversight of the financial affairs of the City. The City Council has the power to adopt ordinances and resolutions, approve appointments to advisory boards and commissions, establish policy and approve programs, act on program and administrative recommendations of City staff, appropriate funds, approve contracts, and respond to concerns and needs of residents.

Together, the City Council and the Mayor govern the City of Eureka and appoint the City Manager, City Attorney, and City Clerk. Individually, the Mayor and Councilmembers may represent the City by serving on state or regional boards.
