Your Delta City Council is comprised of five council members representing districts within the city limits. Members consist of the mayor, mayor pro-tem and three members. All council members are elected for a four-year term. Council elections are staggered every two years. The mayor and mayor pro-tem are elected by the council every two years.
Council is the governing body of your city government. Council members adopt all codes and ordinances of the city and work closely with the city manager, senior city staff and the planning commission. Council members are also members and participants of various boards and organizations that can and do have an impact on city services and functions.
Participation in those various boards are one of the means that council members have to gather the needed information and also provide input affecting city functions. That information and knowledge is imperative in making sound decisions. In addition to board participation, council also relies on input from citizens, business owners and anyone who has an interest in our city.
Council is no different than every member of our society. We all make everyday decisions based upon our personal experiences, knowledge, wisdom and information available to us.
An invaluable resource of information gathering, is the input from anyone having knowledge and information for the council. I truly welcome and encourage your attendance at council meetings. We meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. If you would like to share your concerns, research or general comments with council, please get there a little early and sign up to speak.
Thank you for being a part of your city government and being willing to be a part of shaping the future.
Mayor - Delta
