Meet My City Council
Duties of City Councilmembers
The Napa City Council meets to discuss the key issues facing the City of Napa and to strategize opportunities and solutions to meet the City's need. City departments present to the Council recommended projects and options to help address the various needs of the community. The City Council considers the recommendations and facilitates development of a list that reflects the core strategies and priority activities for the City.
The Napa City Council consists of five members, including one Mayor and four Councilmembers. The Mayor and each Councilmember are elected to four-year terms. The Vice Mayor is appointed annually by the Mayor and City Council pursuant to City Charter (Section 59A).
In addition to appointing the City Manager, City Attorney, and City Clerk, the City Council is responsible for appointing members of City Commissions, Committees, and Boards. Policy Resolution 19 provides direction to the Council, staff, and the public in the procedures of the Council. You may see how the City Council and City Staff are organized by viewing the organizational chart (PDF).
