As the legislative branch and governing body of the City of Wildwood, the City Council's major function is to adopt policy, which generally takes the form of ordinances, resolutions, and budget adoptions. The Council represents eight wards (two council members each), totaling 16 members on the City Council.
All council members serve two-year terms, as elected by majority vote in their respective ward. The annual election in April selects one council member from each ward. After the election, the council selects one of its members to be the mayor pro tempore. The mayor pro tempore assumes the duties of the mayor in the mayor's absence.
* Incumbent Ward One Council Member, Larry McGowen, who was not seeking re-election in the April 2, 2019 election, will remain in office until the tie vote between the candidates for Ward One (Larry Brost and David Hudson) from that election can be resolved at a Special Election on June 4, 2019. All Ward One voters will vote at Wildwood Middle School for the special election.
Agendas & Minutes
The City Council is organized into three working subcommittees:
Each committee consists of eight council members, with the mayor considered as an ad hoc, non-voting member of all committees. All committee meetings are open to the public.
