Cordova's City Council has seven elected members, each serving a three-year term. The Council establishes policy, approves the budget, establishes the mill rate for taxation and appropriates funds to provide for city services.
City Council meetings are scheduled for the first and third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Cordova Center Community Rooms A & B, located at 601 First Street. Individuals wishing to speak at a Council meeting are given two opportunities: individuals wishing to address topics on the agenda (3 minutes) are afforded an opportunity near the beginning of the meeting, or individuals may particiate in the less-restricted audience comments prior to the close of the meeting.
The agenda is established on the Friday prior to each meeting date and posted at the post office, library, city hall lobby, the Cordova Center entrance bulletin board, and on the city website. The deadline for submitting all agenda items to the City Clerk is Wednesday previous to a meeting at 12:00 noon. All council meetings and work sessions are open to the public.
