MAYOR AND COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING NOTICE & AGENDA

 

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.

 

 

REGULAR COUNCIL MEETINGS

The Mayor and Council usually meet the first four Tuesdays of each month in the Mayor and Council Chambers, City Hall, 255 W. Alameda.  A member of the Mayor and Council may be present and participate in a meeting of the governing body by electronic attendance, subject to the conditions included in the Mayor and Council Rules and Regulations.
