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). However, currently meetings are held in the Weingart Ballroom in The Centre to allow for social distancing requirements.
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 five members of the city council are elected at-large to serve a four-year term of office. There are no city council districts. Each year, the city council reorganizes, selecting one council member to serve as mayor and another as vice mayor. 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 Council & Commissions home page for the current appointments list.
