The City Commission consists of five officials elected at large. Three city commissioners are up for election every two years. The two top vote getters win four-year terms, and the third place finisher wins a two-year term. In that way, a majority of the commission can be replaced in any election. No term limits exist.

The City Commission elects a Mayor and Vice-Mayor annually at the first meeting in April in even numbered years and at the second meeting in April in odd numbered years. In 2011, the seats currently held by Commissioners Chestnut, Dever, and Johnson will be up for election.
