About the City Council

By charter approval, the City of Mount Dora has a council / manager form of government. This form of government combines political leadership with the strong professional experience of an appointed city manager.

All power and authority to set policy is vested in the elected City Council, which hires a professional manager to implement policies and manage daily operations of municipal business. Since its adoption more than 100 years ago, the council / manager form of government is the most popular structure for cities exceeding populations of 2,500 in the United States.

The City Council is elected by the public and is empowered to adopt and enforce legislative and budgetary ordinances, policies, rules, and regulations necessary to conduct the business of the public and to provide for protection of the general health, safety, and welfare of the public.

Ordinances & Organization
All ordinances are codified and available for public inspection in the Office of the City Clerk or at Municode.

The City Council consists of seven members, including the mayor. The mayor shall be considered a member of the City Council for all purposes. The City Council shall comprise four district representatives, two at-large representatives, and one mayor, who shall be elected at large. There is no term limitation on elected positions and election terms are two years. Depending upon staggered terms, an election is held every year for either three or four City Council seats. District boundaries shall be established by ordinance as required by law.
