Form of Government
Midvale City has a Council-Manager form of government with five council members representing wards and one mayor representing the entire city. The mayor and city council members are elected to four-year overlapping terms. The mayor is the chief elected official and formal representative of the City. The city manager serves as chief administrative officer overseeing the day-to-day administrative functions of the city. The mayor and city council members make policy decisions, and the staff, led by the City Manager, implements these decisions.
The City Council serves as the Board of Trustees for the Redevelopment Agency. The mayor serves as chief administrative officer and the city manager serves as the executive director. The members of the city council act as the governing body of the Agency and City staff provide management support and technical assistance to the Agency.
City Council and Redevelopment Agency Meetings
The City Council generally holds their regular meetings and workshop sessions on the first and third Tuesday of each month in City Council Chambers beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Redevelopment Agency meets in conjunction with the City Council meetings. The workshop sessions are typically held on the third Tuesday of the month. During workshop sessions, the City Council has the opportunity to review and discuss important items, staff projects, and future Council meeting agenda items. The city manager and staff attend to present topics for discussion and to answer questions. Citizens may also be asked by the Council to provide input. The City Council does not take official action during workshop sessions; therefore, audience comments on agenda items are made only at the request of the mayor or council members. For a list of dates or more information visit the Midvale City Recorder's page.
City Council agendas are posted on the City's website. Sign up to be informed via e-mail notifications when agendas and minutes are posted. Members of the public may address the Council on the topic of their choice under Public Comments.
