One Mayor and eight Councilmen make up the Governing Body. Individually, the Mayor and Councilmen are equal and have no official powers unless they are acting as a body. The Mayor presides over meetings and does have some “official” capacity such as making board appointments and declaring Proclamations. Only as a “governing body” can policy be made or changed.
