CITY MANAGEMENT

 

The elected leadership of the City of Belleville includes the Mayor and City Council.  The Mayor is directly elected by the voters of the city and presides over each City Council meeting and is responsible for making membership appointments to the city's various boards and commissions.  He is also a voting member of the council. 

The City Council includes not only the Mayor, but also the Mayor Pro Tem and three council members. The primary duties of the Mayor Pro Tem include presiding over meetings and ceremonial events in the absence of the Mayor. 

The City of Belleville operates on an administrative process very similar to most other Michigan cities with the council-manager form of government. This is the most common form of municipal governance practiced in Michigan.  The Mayor and City Council set policy and give direction to the City Manager, who in turn manages the city staff.
