City Council

Council Function and Responsibilities

The Springfield City Council is a nonpartisan elected body comprised of one mayor and six city council members who are elected to four-year terms to serve at-large. The at-large structure means that the Mayor and each City Council Member serve the entire community, which is different than some cities that elect council members by ward or district. The part-time Mayor and City Council appoint a City Manager, its one full-time employee, to run the day-to-day operations. Read more about the Council-Manager form of government here.

Council Terms and Eligibility

The Mayor and each Council Member serve for a term of four years.  Citizens elect three Council Members at each regular city election; the Mayor is elected at regular City elections held in odd-numbered years.
