City Council

Meetings


Council meets the first, second, third and fourth weeks of the month. Two of those meetings (the first and third Monday) are regular meetings where action is officially taken on items. The other two meetings are planning sessions where information is presented to the council but no official action is taken. There are also special meetings held occasionally on an as needed basis. The regular meetings are taped for airing on the local cable access channel. 
City council recently conducted a session to identify and prioritize city goals for the next few years and that report is available here.

Agendas & Minutes


Minutes for each meeting are published in the Charles City Press. One of the first items on each regular agenda is a Citizen’s Comments item. This allows citizens a maximum time of five minutes to address any item that is not included on the agenda. The council can not take any official action on these items at that time. Agendas are posted at city hall prior to each meeting.

Members


The City Council consists of five members elected at large, we have no wards. Each term is four years and they are staggered so that not everyone is up for election at the same time. Each council member is also a member of several boards and commissions to serve as a representative of the entire council. These appointments are made each year by the mayor.

Our current council members and their terms are as follows:
Name Term Expires
Jerry Joerger, Mayor Pro Tem December 31, 2017
DeLaine Freeseman December 31, 2017
Michael Hammond December 31, 2019
Dan Mallaro December 31, 2019
Keith Starr December 31, 2019
