Meeting Agendas Meet Your City Council Attend Council Meeting Watch Live / record Video City of Waterford was organized as General Law City in 1969 and operates under Council-Manager form of government. Council-Manager is the most common form of local government and combines strong political leadership of elected officials, with strong managerial experience of appointed local government manager. The City Manager position in this form of municipal government is similar to that of corporate chief executive Officer, providing professional management to the Board of directors. A Council-Manager government is much like a publicly traded corporation. In corporation, Board of directors appoints the CEO, makes major decisions and wields representative power on behalf of shareholders. In a Council-Manager government, elected council appoints the City Manager, makes major decisions, and wields representative power on behalf of citizens. The City Manager is, in turn, responsible for hiring City staff to carry out implementation of decisions made by the Council. The office of Mayor is an elected position for a term of two years. The Mayor is Presiding Officer at City Council meetings. As such, mayor is responsible for maintenance of order and decorum at all times. The Mayor called meeting to order and during the session all persons wishing to speak must first be recognize. The Mayor signs all ordinances, resolutions and contracts approved by the City Council and is ceremonial head of the City, representing the city at official functions. Council members are elected to four year term. As elected leaders of our City, City Council is responsible for ensure the welfare of the people of Waterford. To that end, they are empowered to pass laws, approve spending of money, and set general policy for the City. At each Meeting Council has a number of items to consider. Prior to, and during the meeting, City Manager and staff provide the Council with information and recommendations relative to items on the Council agenda. At each meeting, citizens have the opportunity to voice their opinion on any item that is within the Council's discretion, whether it is list on the agenda or not. Opinions of Waterford citizens are an important factor in helping the Council decide course of action. The willingness of the general public to express their thoughts on issues during meetings is especially important to the City Council. Members of Waterford City Council also serve as Governing Board for the City Redevelopment Agency, Public Financing Authority and serve as City representatives on various regional, state, and local organizations, as well as government boards and committees where concerns and interests of the city require participation and involvement.
