MAYOR'S WELCOME MESSAGE
 

The public is welcome and cordially invited to attend meetings of the Sonora City Council. Meetings are held on the first and third Mondays, beginning at 5:00 p.m. Your presence and participation are considered vital to the enlightened conduct of City affairs. City officials believe that citizen participation at government meetings is the cornerstone of democracy. The City Council is here to serve you, the citizens of Sonora. 
 

THE CITY COUNCIL

The City Council is the legislative body of the City of Sonora and is charged with the responsibility of governing the City. The Council establishes policies to guide the various municipal functions of the City and, where necessary, establishes procedures by which functions are performed.  Regularly policies established by the City Council are adopted by ordinance and included in the Municipal Code. However, other policies are also established by resolution. 

Council members carry voter viewpoints from idea phase to introduction, discussion, decision and action. The Council members are elected to four year terms and the Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem are chosen within the Council for two year terms. 

THE CITY ADMINISTRATOR

The City Administrator is the administrative head of the municipal government. The Administrator is appointed by the City Council and implements polices of the Council and enforces all ordinances.  The Administrator supervises the operation of all departments and divisions of the City government and reports to the Council on these activities.

The annual budget is also prepared under the direction of the City Administrator who expends funds as authorized by the Council.  The Administrator recommends the adoption of measures and ordinances deemed necessary and keeps the Council advised on financial matters.
