The Oxnard City Council consists of an at-large elected Mayor holding a two-year term and six councilmembers elected by district for four-year staggered terms.
After each election the Mayor appoints one of the councilmembers to serve as Mayor Pro Tem to preside over City Council functions in the Mayor’s absence.
The City Council governs the City in a manner that promotes a sound financial base, and responds to the current and future needs and concerns of City residents and businesses. To accomplish this, the Council appoints the City Manager and City Attorney, enacts City ordinances, establishes policy for administrative staff, and approves and oversees the budget of expenditures for the City.
The Council also serves as the board of the City of Oxnard Financing Authority (COFA), the City’s Community Development Commission Successor Agency, and, supplemented by two Tenant Commissioners, serves as the City’s Housing Authority.
