Council members also take feedback from the community, approve the budget and tax rate, adopt ordinances and resolutions, and establish goals and provide direction. The City Council is also responsible to supervise, monitor, and evaluate the performance of the City Manager, City Attorney, City Secretary, and Municipal Judge.  Council members are elected to three-year terms with a limit of three full terms.
