The Garfield City Council consists of four publicly elected aldermen, who serve for a period of two years per term. Two aldermen are elected per City Ward. The Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month, and at specially-called meetings, to consider legislation governing municipal operations.
Ordinances are typically passed by the Council through a simple majority vote. The Mayor of Garfield presides over each City Council Meeting; in the event of a tie vote by the Council, the Mayor casts a deciding vote of approval.
Minutes for each City Council Meeting are prepared by the Recorder-Treasurer, approved by the Mayor, and finally considered by the City Council at the following monthly meeting. See below for a recently posted City Council Meeting Agenda and the latest approved City Council Meeting Minutes.
