City Commission

City Commission

The City Commission serves as the City’s legislative body, consisting of four Commissioners and a Mayor. The Commissioners represent the citizens of Huntington Woods and formulate and enable policy as the legislative and policy-making body of the municipal government. The Mayor and Commissioners are elected at large for four-year terms at non-partisan elections held in November of each odd-numbered year. The Mayor Pro-Tem is selected from among their fellow Commissioners for a one-year term. The City Commission operates as a Home Rule Charter City, with a Council-Manager form of government. 

As the City’s legislative body, the City Commission is empowered to pass ordinances and adopt resolutions as it deems necessary to carry out the responsibilities of the City, consistent with the City Charter and state law. The City Commission also acts on recommendations from the various City boards, committees and commissions.

The City Commission appoints the City Manager, who is responsible to the City Commission for carrying out the day-to-day operations of the City, consistent with policy set by the City Commission. The City Commission also appoints the Director of Public Safety, the City Clerk and the City Attorney; however, they report to, and take direction from, the City Manager.
