Roles and Duties
The legislative powers of the City Government are vested in Clayton's elected officials, which include the Mayor, who is elected at-large for a three year term, and six Aldermen, who are elected from the City's three wards on a staggered three year term basis. The Mayor and the Board of Aldermen represent Clayton's various constituencies in establishing municipal policies and priorities and are assisted by the City administration and various advisory boards and commissions.
Voluntary Boards, Committees, and Commissions
A member of a City of Clayton board, committee or commission serves a very important role in community life. Residents or other individuals who serve on a board, committee or commission dedicate many hours a year in service to the City and its citizens without compensation. The input of these committee members helps to shape the policies under which the City operates. This interaction helps make the government reflective of citizen attitudes and to set the standards of service expected by the citizens. The Mayor, with Board of Aldermen approval, appoints all board, committee and commission members.
The terms of office for the various boards, committees, and commissions vary from one to five years.
