The City of Seminole operates under a Home Rule form of government.

The City Council serves as the governing body for Seminole. It consists of five council members, each representing a specific district within the city and a mayor. These dedicated officials are responsible for a wide range of duties, including:

  • Adopting all ordinances and resolutions that ensure the safety, well-being, and prosperity of our community.
  • Adopting the city budget, allocating resources effectively to maintain essential services and fund vital projects.
  • Providing leadership and direction on matters such as infrastructure development, public safety, economic growth, and community development.
  • Appointing key city officials, such as the City Manager, who implements the day-to-day operations of the city administration.
  • Representing the interests of Seminole residents and acting as a liaison between the community and other governing bodies.

The Home Rule structure allows for a more participatory form of government. Seminole residents have the opportunity to:

  • Vote in local elections to choose their City Council representatives.
  • Attend City Council meetings to stay informed about local issues and voice their opinions.
  • Participate in public hearings on proposed ordinances and projects.

By working together, our elected officials and engaged citizens ensure that Seminole remains a vibrant and thriving community for generations to come.
