The Chico City Council is composed of seven council members
elected to staggered four-year terms. There is an election each
November of even numbered years with either three or four seats
up for election. In cases where a council member is unable to
complete a term, the Council can appoint a replacement, but that
position will be subject to a vote at the next general election.
The Council selects a mayor and vice mayor from among its members
to serve two-year terms.
