City Council meetings are administered by the Governing Body and are held the second and fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. The City of Douglas operates under a Mayor-Council form of government, with an appointed City Administrator. The Mayor and City Council establish objectives for the operation of the city and act as the policy making body, and this plays a fundamental role in the direction the community takes from year to year. The mayor presides at meetings of the City Council and is recognized as the head of city government for all ceremonial purposes, and the Council President presides over meetings in the Mayor's absence. Should a Council meeting fall on a holiday, the meeting is typically held on the next business day following the holiday.
A quorum of the Governing Body requires a minimum of three Council members to be present. Robert's Rules of Order and applicable Wyoming State Statutes and Douglas Municipal Code govern the conduct and format of Council meetings. The City of Douglas is committed to providing efficient and cost-effective public services. We strive to maintain public trust and confidence in local government and to improve the quality of life for all residents of the community.
Regular Council Meetings and Special Meetings are broadcast on Cable Channel 9; Study Sessions typically are not broadcast live. All meetings are open to the public.
