The Evans City Council consists of seven elected members, one of whom is elected by the residents to be Mayor. City Council members elect the Mayor Pro-Tem to serve in the absence of the Mayor. The City is divided into three Wards or geographic areas from which members are elected. These Wards are intended to provide a balance for equal representation from the greater community. The Mayor is elected at large from the community.
As the City's governing body, the Council sets policy, adopts ordinances and resolutions and establishes an annual budget, but does not oversee the daily operations of the city. The City Council appoints the City Manager, City Attorney and Municipal Judge.
The City Council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Evans Community Complex. Work Sessions are generally held prior to the regular City Council meetings.
All regular City Council meetings and Work Sessions are open to the public. Residents and other interested parties are welcome and are encouraged to attend. The City Council members hold part-time positions with the City, but do not maintain offices within the City Complex. Most of the Council members have regular full-time jobs. If you have any questions, the best way to contact your City Council representative is through email or leaving a message on their voice mail.
