The City of Tucson has a council-manager form of government. Policies are set by the Mayor and Council, who are elected by the people. Policies are carried out by the City Manager, who is appointed by the Mayor and Council. The Mayor and Council decides what is to be done; the City Manager, operating through the entire city staff, does it.
The Mayor and Council meet beginning at 5:30 p.m. on each of the first four Tuesdays of every month, except for July and August, when there is only a meeting on the first Tuesday. The City Charter mandates that Mayor and Council hold a meeting during the first week of a month. If a holiday falls on a Monday or Tuesday in that first week, the meeting will then be held on Wednesday. No meetings are held on holidays or the fifth Tuesday.
Persons attending the meetings shall observe rules of propriety, decorum, and good conduct, and refrain from impertinent or slanderous remarks. Violation of this rule shall result in such persons being barred from further audience before the governing body. A copy of the complete rules and regulations may be obtained from the City Clerk.
The Mayor and Council often schedules public hearings on topics of interest. Pursuant to Mayor and Council Rules and Regulations, public hearings last one hour. Interested persons are invited to attend and offer comments. Additionally, Call to the Audience is reserved for comments from the public.
