Elected Officials
The City Council is the governing body of the City of Salisbury.  The Council is comprised of five members who are elected on a nonpartisan basis for two-year terms.  Each Council Member serves at-large and represents the entire City.  Following an election, Council holds an organizational meeting and elects one of its members to serve as Mayor, and one to serve as Mayor Pro Tem, for the following two-year period.  The Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem have the same powers as the other members of Council and vote upon all issues.  The Mayor serves as the spokesperson for the Council and is authorized to execute legal documents on behalf of the City.

Meetings of the City Council are held the first and third Tuesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. in Council Chambers located at City Hall, 217 South Main Street.
