The City Council is the elected governing body of the City of Harrisonburg and is made up of five members elected at-large.
The City Council meets at 7:00pm every second and fourth Tuesday of the month in Council Chambers (409 South Main Street). Meetings are open to the public.
You can also watch council meetings on the Public Education Government Channel (Channel 3) or stream video online through the council media page. Meetings are broadcast live on the Public Education Government Channel and this website.
As City Council continues its work of recruitment for the next City Manager, they are seeking your input on the issues important to you and the items you believe should be priorities for the successful candidate. While City Council is responsible for the hiring of the next City Manager, council members want to ensure that the next manager of the City is familiar with the issues of importance to the residents. To this end, Novak Consulting Group, the firm hired by Council to assist with this endeavor, has prepared a short survey for residents to complete. Please provide your input through the online survey and thank you in advance for your time.
