City Organizational Chart

As its governing body, Concord's City Council is comprised of five elected members, who serve at large, rather than by district, each for four-year terms. City voters also elect a City Treasurer who serves for a four-year term.

The City Council also serves as the Board of Directors of the Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District (CPPHCD), the Board of the Local Reuse Authority, and as the Successor Agency Oversight Board of the former Redevelopment Agency. 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.


Elections

Municipal elections are consolidated with the general election held every two years in November of the even-numbered years. Council terms overlap, with three Councilmembers elected one year and the other two elected two years later. The Council annually selects one of its members to serve as Mayor and another as Vice Mayor.
