The Morrison City Council is comprised of eight elected Alderpersons from four wards and the Mayor, who is elected at large. Elected officials serve four-year terms, with the Alderpersons serving staggered terms. Municipal elections are held in the Spring of odd numbered years during the Consolidated Election.
All City Council and Commission meetings are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend. Each City Council meeting has a public comment section where citizens may address the Mayor and Council about topics of interest or concern. Citizens are required to sign-in before the meeting if they would like to make a comment, so they can be included in the minutes.
The City Council of Morrison meets twice monthly on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Meetings are at 6:30 PM and are held in the Community Room, located in the Odell Public Library at 307 S. Madison Street, Morrison, Illinois.
