|Overview of City Administration|
The City is governed by five city council members who are elected at large to four-year terms. Elections are held every two years (in odd numbered years) to fill alternately two and three seats. The City Council then elects one member to serve as the Mayor for a one-year term and another as the Mayor Pro Tem. City Council meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 7:30 PM in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 125 E. College St. City Council meetings are also broadcast on local cable television on Time Warner Channel 29 and Verizon channel 42. Learn more about the Covina City Council.
