City Council

City Council meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Council Meetings start at 7:00 pm and are held at the city building located at 714 Main Street. 

The Ashton City Council invites the public to the monthly meetings and encourages participation in local government.

How the Council is Elected and Establish Policies

Four Council members, elected with no party affiliation, make up the City Council. They are elected to four-year overlapping terms as part-time officials. Terms are staggered, and elections are held every two years.

The City Council establishes policies governing City operations and enacts ordinances and resolutions to amend or update the Ashton Municipal Code. The Council levies taxes, adopts the City's yearly budget, and appoints members to citizen advisory boards. Decisions made by the City Council protect the health, safety, general welfare, and future well-being of the citizens of Ashton.

* The mayor does not vote on any issue unless there is a tie vote among the council members.
