The City of Stillwater operates under a council-manager system. In this form of government, an elected City Council is responsible for making policy, passing ordinances and approving the City’s budget. The Council appoints a city manager who implements the policies the Council adopts. Residents are encouraged to be an active participant in local government.
The Council is comprised of five members who are elected at-large. The public elects the mayor, who presides over the meetings; the Council elects one of its members to serve as vice mayor.
Council generally meets the first and third Mondays of the month in the Council Hearing Room at the Municipal Building, 723 S. Lewis St., at 5:30 p.m.
