As its governing body, Concord's City Council is comprised of five elected members, each for four-year terms. The City Council also serves as the Board of Directors of the Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District (CPPHCD), and the Board of the Local Reuse Authority. Items considered by these bodies are done so on regular City Council Agendas.
Concord is among more than 300 cities in California operating under the Council-Manager form of government. The Council hires the City Manager, who is then responsible for all management functions of the City, including preparation of the budget, delivery of services, hiring of personnel, and implementation of capital projects. The City Council also directly hires the City Attorney who serves as the City's primary legal advisor.
Council Standing Committees
There are currently five standing City Council Committees, each of which is made up of two Councilmembers. The committees meet monthly and make recommendations to the City Council for action on items they have considered.
The Mayor makes new committee assignments following the reorganization of the City Council at the end of the calendar year. Committee members serve one-year terms. Committee agendas are available on the City's website.
