Mayor & City Council

Government Organization

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.

City Council Meetings

City Council Meetings are held at the City Council Chambers at City Hall on the first and third Tuesdays of every month at 7 p.m. and additionally as needed.
