CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS .....................

The CITY COUNTY MEETING is the process of making and amending laws, developing policy and making decisions for governing your City by citizens whom have been elected by you.  The City Council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month (unless scheduled otherwise) at 2:00 p.m. in the City Hall meeting room located at 90 West Fourth Street.  The meetings are open to the public and all are invited to attend.  The Mayor is the official head of the City and is elected for a four-year term.  The Mayor presides over all meetings of the Council and votes only in the case of a tie on ordinances, resolutions and other Council actions. The Mayor has veto power over the Council's votes but can be overridden by a four (4) to five (5) Council vote.  The City Council is the governing body of the City of Winnemucca.  There are five (5) Council seats.  All officers serve four-year, staggered terms.  Candidates run for office and are elected by the electors of the City at large.  The members of the Council constitute a quorum and may conduct City business.  Ordinances and Resolutions require three (3) affirmative votes to pass.  See the Winnemucca Muncipal Code (WMC) Title 2, Chapter 2.16 regarding meeting guidelines.
