City Government
Eagle City government is based upon an active full-time Mayor and four (4) City Council members.  The duties associated with a City Manager in other municipalities are managed by the Mayor as Eagle's Chief Executive Officer.  The Mayor carries out the policies and directives of the Council.  The Mayor sets the agenda for the Council and votes only when there is a tie vote.  City Council members are elected to four-year terms of office in November elections in alternate years.  Two members are elected in each election cycle so that two new members are paired with two seated Council members to address the City's business.  City leaders are very pro-economic development and pro-business.
