The City of Greenacres has a Council-Manager
form of Government that combines the strong political
leadership of elected officials (Mayor and City
Council) with the managerial experience of an appointed
City Manager. The Mayor and five (5) City Council
members serve as the legislative body of the City
enacting legislation, setting policy, approving
the budget, and comprehensive plan to guide the
growth of the City.
The Mayor is elected at large for a two (2) year
term, and serves as the key elected official presiding
at Council meetings, facilitating communication
between elected and appointed officials; assisting
the Council in setting goals and advocating policy
decisions. The Mayor does not vote on issues before
the Council unless there is a tie vote. The Mayor
also has the power to veto ordinances.
The five (5) Councilmembers are
also elected by all City registered voters for staggered
two year terms to represent the entire City. The
Council appoints a City Manager to manage the day-to-day
operations of the City, and implement Council policies.
The Manager is responsible for preparing an annual
budget, overseeing all City government operations
including all personnel, and preparing policy proposals
for the Council’s consideration.
The City Council also appoints a City Attorney to
serve as the legal advisor to all departments relating
to their official duties. The City Council meets
the first and third Monday of each month at 7:00
p.m. at City Hall. City Council agendas can be viewed
