Duties of the Mayor and Council

Description: One of the most misunderstood aspects of municipal government is the separation of powers between the mayor and the council. Like government on the state and federal levels, municipal government is divided into three separate but equal branches: executive, legislative and judicial. Each of these branches has distinct duties and powers and restrictions on how far it can intrude into the affairs of the other branches. This session provides a detailed overview of the duties of the mayor and council. This webinar and successful completion of the test qualifies as an required core curriculum course in the Certified Municipal Official Program (CMO). Any municipal employee may register, but only elected official will be awarded credit hours in the CMO Program.
