The City of Plantation has a Strong Mayor form of government, meaning City Council sets policies for the operation of the City and the Mayor acts as the Chief Executive Officer, having administrative responsibility for policy execution and daily operations. The Mayor and Councilmembers are elected citywide (“at large”) to four year terms.
The City Council enacts Ordinances, the laws of the City, adopts Resolutions authorizing actions on behalf of the City and establishes the policies by which the City is governed. They are also responsible for reviewing development plans and approving major projects, addressing zoning issues, and passing the City’s $195 million budget. The Council structure has a President, a Pro Tem, an honorary Treasurer and two Council Members. The President and President Pro Tem are nominated and elected by a majority vote of all Council Members. The honorary Treasurer is appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council.
