Agendas & Meeting Results


Approved Detailed Minutes



Mesa operates under a charter form of government, with the citizens electing a mayor and six councilmembers to set the policies of City government. The City has converted to a council district form of government. In 2000, three councilmembers were elected to represent three districts. In the election of 2002, the remaining three councilmembers were elected to represent the remaining three districts. The mayor and councilmembers are elected to four-year terms.


As part of each meeting agenda, action may be taken on: zoning matters, awarding of contracts to purchase equipment, supplies or for construction improvements within the City, liquor license applications, ordinances, and resolutions.


During meetings, citizens may address the council on items pertaining to the agenda.


Minutes of past City Council meetings are posted at this site after they are approved by the City Council. The preliminary agenda of the next council meeting is posted at this site approximately four days before a council meeting and the final agenda, which incorporates any last minute changes to the preliminary agenda, usually is posted at this site the morning of the council meeting.


All City Council meetings are broadcast live on cable television on Mesa Channel 11 and will be rebroadcast the following two days at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
