Lakewood City Council
City council meetings are typically held twice each month, on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, in the city council chambers at The Centre (map). In some months the council might meet only once a month, most often during the holiday season or in the summer.
To confirm a meeting is happening, it is best to consult the council agenda, posted within 72 hours of the scheduled meeting, or to contact the city clerk’s office at 562-866-9771, extension 2200.
The mayor is selected by the city council from among its members and serves a one-year term.
The city council appoints a city manager and a city attorney. In addition, the city council appoints the Community Safety Commission, the Planning and Environment Commission, and the Recreation and Community Services Commission.
See the city meeting main page for agendas and meeting information.
