All members of the governing body are elected at-large (as opposed to districts), serve 4-year terms, and receive no compensation for their service to the City. Beginning in 2004, the terms of office of the mayor and members of the city council shall be staggered (City Ordinance No. 1627) and elections will be held every two (2) years.
