City Council Goals

City Governance
The City of Lake Forest Park was incorporated in 1961 and operates as a non-charter code city with a Mayor-Council form of government.  The Mayor and seven City Councilmembers are non-partisan elected officials who serve four-year terms.  Municipal elections are held in November of odd-numbered years and terms are staggered so that no more than four positions are up for election every two years.

The City Council is the legislative body of the City.  It enacts laws and regulations, establishes policy direction for the City, establishes tax and fee rates, adopts an Annual Budget, and approves payment of all City moneys.
