2017 Albion City Council
The City of Albion operates under the Council-Manager form of government. City residents elect a Mayor and a City Council to preside over the City, and the City Council appoints a City Manager to handle the day-to-day administration of the City. The City Manager makes recommendations to the Council, and the Council acts on business at regularly scheduled meetings.
The Albion City Council consists of the Mayor and six Council members. Council members are elected to four-year terms, staggered every two years. A Mayor is elected every two years.
The Mayor is the presiding officer of the City Council. He or she is a voting member of the Council. The Mayor makes all appointments approved by the Council except those required by law or ordinance to be made by another officer or agency of the City. If a vacancy occurs in the Mayor's office, or the Mayor is unable to perform his or her duties, the Council member elected Mayor Pro Tem succeeds the Mayor.
The Albion City Council represents the City and its citizens. The Council is responsible for adopting and amending City laws and ordinances, determining City policies and standards, and authorizing the annual City budget. The Council also determines City tax millage rates and utility rates, and approves contracts and agreements for the City.
The Albion City Council meets on the first and third Mondays of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Council chambers at City Hall (112 W. Cass Street). Meetings are broadcast live on Millennium Digital Media Channel 21. Council Agendas are available for review at City Hall on Fridays preceding meetings as well as on the city web page. Minutes of City Council meetings are available at City Hall and at the Albion District Library (501 S. Superior Street) as well as on the city web page.
Time for citizen comments is set aside twice during each Council meeting, once near the beginning of the meeting and once near the end.
