The City Council is comprised of five (5) individuals, elected by the residents of the City of Hughson. The City operates under the Council/Manager form of municipal government and the City Council is responsible for setting policy and providing direction to the City Manager and City staff on all matters concerning the City.
Council members serve four (4) year terms and the Mayor serves a two (2) year term. Council elections are held every two years; therefore, the Mayor and two or three council members are up for election every election cycle. The Mayor is the ceremonial head of the city and as such represents the City at official functions, signs all ordinances, resolutions and contracts approved by the City Council.
The City Council is charged with ensuring the welfare of the people of Hughson; to that end, they are empowered to pass ordinances and resolutions, approve the spending of money, and set general policy for the City. The City Council holds City Council meetings, which are open to the public, to take these actions. All items to be acted on are provided to the public via an agenda packet that is made available to the public approximately four (4) days prior to the meeting. The opinions of Hughson citizens are an important factor in helping the Council decide a course of action. The willingness of the general public to express their thoughts on issues during the meetings is especially important to the City Council.
Council members also serve as City representatives on various regional, state, and local organizations, as well as government boards and committees where the concerns and interests of the City require participation and involvement. Council members receive compensation of $250.00 per month and the Mayor $300.00 per month for their respective services.
