Mayor & City Council

The Beaumont City Council is comprised of five Council members, each sharing equal voting powers on all items coming before the Council. Council members are elected to at-large positions for four-year terms, with elections held in November of even-numbered years. The City Council meets annually to select one of its members to serve as Mayor and another to serve as Mayor Pro Tem for one year but no more than two consecutive years.

The City Council provides legislative and policy direction to the City Manager, who implements their decisions to direct the activities of the City. The City Council responds to issues and concerns of the community by allocating resources, developing policies, and formulating strategies that support the vitality and economic viability of the City.  All of their decisions must be made at public meetings.


The City Council appoints the City Manager and City Attorney and members of all advisory boards, commissions, and committees.
