Through popular elections on even numbered years, Lynchburg citizens regularly choose the seven members of City Council. With staggered four-year terms of office, City Council is elected on either an At-large (3 members) or Ward (4 members) representational basis. Among their group, the elected City Council members, in turn, choose by simple majority vote a President or Mayor, who serves a two-year term.
As the chief legislative body of the municipal corporation, the City Council conducts regular meetings for the purpose of accomplishing City Charter - prescribed responsibilities and business transactions. City Council meetings are broadcast live on Lynchburg Government Channel LTV 15.
