Councilmember terms overlap, with three Councilmembers elected one year and the other two elected two years later. Councilmembers serve a four-year term. Candidates are elected from districts where they live.  The Councilmembers choose amongst themselves who will serve as Mayor and Vice Mayor, who serve a one-year term. The City Councilmembers also serve as the Local Reuse Authority for the former Concord Naval Weapons Station and the Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District.
