City Council

City Council is the governing body of the city. They collectively have many legislative powers that affect the citizens of Waverly. City Council was started in 1971, as dictated by the City Charter, and is comprised of 7 council members. Five of the seven members represent a WARD of the city, and the remaining two are elected AT LARGE. All Council members serve four-year terms, but the terms are staggered, so that terms end every other year. Check out the Ward Map to see which ward represents you! 

Qualifications of City Council Members are:

Must live in the city for 3 continuous years before election
Must live in ward if applicable for 1 year
Must continue to live in the city for the duration of the term
Must not be elected, appointed or employed by a municipal or public office
Must not have any other interests in the profit of the city, such as contract work
