The City of Montgomery operates under a council-manager form of government with seven elected City Council members working with a city manager appointed by City Council with the support of a clerk of council and a law director.  All City Council members are elected at large by a popular vote of residents for staggered terms of four years.  Once seated, City Council members choose the Mayor who serves for a two-year term.

City Council is responsible for establishing policies and enacting legislation necessary for municipal operations.  City Council appoints the city manager, law director, and clerk of council.  By charter, the city manager serves as the City’s chief executive, administrative, and law enforcement officer.

City Council operates with six standing committees:  Financial Planning; Government Affairs; Law and Safety; Parks and Recreation; Planning, Zoning, and Landmarks; and Public Works.

Several initiatives are undertaken each year to maintain communications between City Council and the boards, commissions and civic organizations, including:

  • Each board/commission chair was invited to update City Council on the activities and work of the respective board/commission for the previous year.
  • City Council and the administration conducted an annual board and commission member orientation session.
  • A Community Leadership Forum was held to provide an opportunity for volunteers, neighborhood association representatives, civic groups, local school officials, business leaders, elected officials, and City administration to discuss topics of interest.

As part of City Council’s responsibilities for establishing policies and enacting legislation, it oversaw operations and administration of a budget of $32,683,446 and adopted 60 ordinances and resolutions in 2018.

 

On July 25, 2018, Montgomery City Council and staff dedicated the newly renovated Public Works building expansion, which included additional storage, offices, a larger break room, restrooms and locker space. 

Mayor Chris Dobrozsi presented Matula Gregory of the Montgomery Inn a Mayoral Proclamation for her 90th Birthday.
