City Council

Goshen's City Council is made up of five district representatives and two at-large representatives (the mayor acts as presiding officer). Council terms are four years, with no term limits. City Council is the legislative body of Goshen, meaning it can pass, amend, or rescind local ordinances (the mayor may vote only to break a tie). City Council is also Goshen's fiscal body, with responsibility for approving the annual budget and other financial agreements involving the City. Council also appoints members to various commissions and boards. 

All City Council legal authority is collective, rather than individual. Council can only set policy together with a majority vote.

The Council includes a Youth adviser, a student elected by peers at Goshen High School every year in May. The Youth Adviser participates fully in proceedings, including voting; although the vote is not counted towards the legal outcome.

To contact your council representative, visit the Elected Officials page.
