The Salinas City Council serves as the policy-making and legislative body of the City of Salinas. The mayor serves a two year term and Council members serve four-year terms.
The City Council seeks guidance and input from Salinas' residents in order to carry out their duties. To fulfill that need, the City Council has formed a number of boards, commissions, and committees who study various issues and recommend appropriate direction to the City Council.
The City Council holds regular public meetings on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. These meetings are open to the public. See the Calendar and the Agenda archive for more details.
