About the Council

The Town of Wickenburg operates under the Council-Manager form of government, under which the Town Council functions as the legislature and the town manager, as chief appointed official, administers council policies. The Town Council is ultimately responsible for the Town, but because council members serve part-time, responsibility for day-today operations is delegated to the town manager and his staff. The Council-Manager form of government is the most widely used system in the nation among cities and towns with a population of 2,000 or more. It has proven its value both locally and nationally in terms of citizen participation and operating efficiency.

Elected Officials

Wickenburg voters select six council members in biennial (even year) nonpartisan elections. Council members serve for four years, with terms staggered so that three are elected in one election and three the following even-year election. Since 1996, the mayor is directly elected and serves a four year term. Council, as the Town legislative body, adopts ordinances and resolutions, establishes policies, adopts the annual budget, approves appropriations, and sets the Town's tax rate. In addition to appointing the town manager, the council also appoints the judge, attorney, and engineer.

Action Take by Council

Within three days after a council meeting the council agenda will include the action taken by the Town Council. These are usually posted the next morning.

If you have problems viewing the agenda, minutes, or packets please contact the Town Clerk, Amy Brown, at (928) 684-5451 x1517 or abrown@wickenburgaz.org
