GOVERNING BODY

The City of Wallis has a Mayor - Council form of government.  The City Council consists of six members, a Mayor and five Councilors.  The Mayor exercises a vote only in the case of a tie.  All powers of the City are vested with the City Council, which enacts ordinances, sets policies and is responsible for  the City's budget.

MEETINGS

The City Council meets on the third Wednesday of each month.  Meetings are held at City Hall, and begin at 7:00 PM.  Agendas for upcoming meetings are posted a minimum of 72 hours prior to the meeting.  Such posting is done at the entrance to City Hall.  All meetings are open to the public, and can only occur if a quorum of the Council is present.  Each meeting agenda provides for comments from the audience, and anyone is free to offer comments to the Council by attending the meeting and registering with the City Secretary.

ADMINISTRATION

Administration of the City is vested with a City Administrator and City Secretary who are directly accountable to the City Council.  Department heads serve under the direction of the City Administrator.

JUDICIAL

Violations of laws or ordinances within the City are adjudicated in a Municipal Court presided over by the Municipal Judge.  The Judge serves by appointment of the Mayor.

ELECTIONS

Election of City Council members is held annually in the month of May.  Council members serve two-year terms, with the terms being staggered.  The City does not employ electoral districts, thus all members run for at-large positions.  The candidates receiving the highest number of votes are elected to fill the Council seats up for election.
