The City Council serves as the legislative body of the City and is responsible for setting policy and approving the annual fiscal year budget. The Mayor serves a term of four years as the chief executive officer of the City and is elected by the electorate on an at-large basis. Learn more about City Council from the City Charter.
Not counting the position of Mayor, there are eight City Council members with two elected from each of the City of Ionia's four wards on a partisan basis for four-year terms. The City Council selects one of its members to serve as deputy mayor who, if a mayoral vacancy occurs, shall become mayor for the remainder of the unexpired term.
