The Ypsilanti City Council is comprised of a Mayor, who is elected by voters in the city at-large, and 6 Council Members elected from the City's 3 voting wards.
The City of Ypsilanti employs a council-manager form of government that combines the strong political leadership of elected officials with the strong managerial experience of an appointed local government manager.
This form of municipal government establishes a representative system where all power is concentrated in the elected council and where the council hires a professionally trained manager to oversee the delivery of public services.
