A relatively young city, Elk Grove was incorporated in 2000, and the current City Hall was built four years later.…More The city operates on a manager-council model of government, where an appointed city manager oversees day-to-day business and reports to five elected council members. Voters passed a ballot initiative in 2010 to create a directly-elected mayor starting in 2012.
City Hall is the place where residents can obtain building permits or business licenses, find information about local transit and housing options or pay utility bills, among other services.
The city council meets across the street in the council chambers every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 6pm. Live streaming of council meetings is available on the city's website, along with meeting agendas for the council and all city commissions and committees.
