Melfort City Council consists of a Mayor and six Councillors, elected for a term of four years. Each member of Council represents the community as a whole and all decisions of Council are by majority vote. Council is responsible for setting City policy, which is implemented and administered by the City Manager.

Agenda items, requests for delegations and correspondence for the regular Council meeting must be received by the City Clerk by 12:00 noon on the Thursday prior to the meeting.  Please note that unless it is deemed confidential by the Clerk, all correspondence and communication received by Council becomes a public document , which is made available to the media.
