Common Council consists of two elected representatives for each of the City’s five wards. Common Council members (also known as Alderpersons), serve four year terms, and are paid $9,641 annually. You can find information about who your Common Council representatives are and where you vote by using our property search tool. A map of the City's election wards and districts can be found here.
The Mayor presides over Common Council meetings but may only vote when Common Council is setting the annual property tax rate, or when a Common Council vote results in a tie.
