Overview

The City of Rockledge functions under a council / manager form of municipal government. The City Council consists of six members elected at-large for three-year terms, along with the Mayor, whose term is also for three years. The terms of the Council members are staggered to allow election of two council seats each year, the election of mayor occurring simultaneously with council seats three and four. The municipal election is held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November each year.

While the Mayor and the City Council act as the legislative body of the City of Rockledge, the actual operation of the City and its day-to-day functions are the responsibility of the City Manager and her departmental support staff consisting of Public Relations Officer and City Clerk, Finance Director, Building Official, Planning Director, Director of Public Safety, Director of Public Works, Director of Wastewater Treatment and Water Reclamation and the Community Advocate/Assistant to the City Manager.

The chairman of the City Council is empowered to appoint members of the City Council to serve on subcommittees and to represent the City Council on other governmental bodies that require the City's input.
