Blue Lake City Council

The City of Blue Lake is governed by a five-member, elected City Council, which establishes overall policies for the city. Annually, the council selects one of its members to serve as mayor and another to serve as mayor pro-tem. The mayor presides at council meetings; the mayor pro-tem presides in the mayor's absence. City Council meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month, unless otherwise posted. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. and are held at the Skinner Store Building behind City Hall. 

City Council Members

Elections are held in November of even-numbered years, in which either two or three council members are elected to four-year terms. The council members work together to enact laws and establish administrative policy for the city through the council's rules and regulations. They also appoint the City Manager, City Attorney, Commissioners and Committee members.
