City Council

The Maquoketa City Council is made up of the mayor and seven city council members. The mayor is an at large position and is a two-year term. There is one council member position for each ward and two at large positions. Council member positions are four-year terms.

The mayor is the chief executive officer of the city and presides over council meetings. This means the mayor manages the meetings and maintains order.

The authority of the city resides in the city council. The council votes on and passes motions, resolutions and ordinances. Resolutions are statements of policy and ordinances are the laws of the city. The votes of each council member are recorded in the minutes of the meeting. The council also approves expenditures and the budget, contracts, city policies and zoning changes.

To hold office in a city, a candidate must be an eligible elector. To be an eligible elector, the candidate must meet the same qualifications required to vote and be a resident of the City of Maquoketa. If running for a Council seat representing a specific ward of the City, the candidate must be a resident of that ward.

Council meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of each month. All meetings of the Maquoketa City Council are open to the public, unless otherwise stated.
