Forms of the City Government



Cities may not do anything the state prohibits. Every city is a creature of the state. A state allows cities to write their own charter, choose their own form of government: the commission form, mayor-council form, council-manager form and the city-manager form.

The council-manager form is very popular in middle sized cities. A city manager is appointed by a city council to administer the city.

In theory the council makes policy and the manager sees that these general directions are carried out by the city administration. The manager is hired by the council and can be fired at any time. The manager, in turn, hires the heads of departments who work for the city except judges and elected officials.

In the mayor-council form of city government there is no city manager. Mayor and council appoint department heads and coordinate their work. In a “weak”-mayor system, the council makes appointments, in a “strong”-mayor one, the mayor makes appointments.

The mayor-council system is most popular among very small and very large cities.

The commission form is not often used. The basic feature of commission government is its union of legislative and executive power: each member of the city commission also serves as head of a major city department. The typical city commission has five commissioners and five departments. Those five departments might be public safety, public works, finance, social service, and parks and recreation.

The advantage of this form is that the persons who make city policy (the commission) are also in charge of carrying it out. In this form there is, of course, a mayor, but usually a mayor in a commission system of government is elected by the commission. One of the commissioners is simply given the title of mayor by the other members.

The city-manager form is the most popular one among cities managing in population from 10,000 to 100,000.

1. What forms of city government are there?
