The City of Mt. Shasta elects five City Council members, who are elected at large, meaning there are no specific districts in which a candidate runs for office. Each of these elected officials represents the entire constituency. Each elected official serves a four-year term. In addition to the five City Council members, the City Treasurer and City Clerk serve the community on an elected basis.
City Council Dynamics: The Mayor and the Mayor Pro Tem are selected and appointed each November by a majority vote of the five members on the City Council and serve a one-year term. The expiration for terms of office for the members of the City Council are staggered so as to prevent all five positions coming up for election simultaneously.
