About the City Council

The City of Highland was incorporated in 1987 as a General Law city with a City Council/City Manager form of government. The City Council consists of five members, elected by district, but representing the city’s interests as a whole. Annually, the City Council elects one of its members to serve as Mayor and another to serve as Mayor Pro Tem.

The Mayor is the Presiding Officer at City Council meetings. Additionally, he or she makes ad hoc committee assignments and represents the City at official functions. The Mayor Pro Tem assumes the duties of the Mayor in his or her absence. As with all boards and commissions in the city, the Council is expected to operate within a code of ethics (PDF).
