City Commission

The City of Sarasota is governed by a "Commission - Manager" form of government. There are five City Commissioners, two are elected at-large and three are elected from single-member districts. All elections are nonpartisan. In April of each year the Commissioners select a Mayor and Vice Mayor from among their members. The City Commission appoints a City Manager, a City Auditor and Clerk and a City Attorney, who are known as "Charter Officials". The City Commission meets the first and third Mondays of each month at City Hall and the public is welcome. Further information regarding the City's form of government can be found in the City's Charter. ...
