Weyburn City Council consists of a mayor and six councillors, elected for a term of four years.
Council’s main role is to make decisions about the services the City of Weyburn provides to its citizens. Council establishes policies about what essential core services to provide, how those services will be delivered and at what levels.
Policy is initiated by council and administered by the city manager. Each member of council represents the community as a whole and all decisions of council are by majority vote.
The administration is then charged with implementing those policies. Council relies on the support, advice and assistance of the administration throughout the decision-making process.
To be eligible to run for mayor or councillor, a person must be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years of age, and have lived in the City of Weyburn for at least three months and in the Province of Saskatchewan for six months immediately preceding the day of the election.
Weyburn City Council meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 5 p.m. in the council chambers of city hall. All regular meetings of Weyburn City Council are televised on Access 7 (community channel).
