The Council consists of a Mayor and five Council members, nominated and elected from the City at large. The City of Wheeler elects its Mayor for a term of four years. The Mayor chairs the Council meetings and votes only when a tie occurs. The Mayor’s general duties include presiding over Council deliberations, preserving order, and enforcing Council rules. The Mayor also acts as spokesperson and official representative of the City.

The City elects five Council members, each for a term of four years. The City Council’s function is two fold: to enact City code by passing ordinances, and to help build a common vision for Wheeler through creative and representative municipal policy making. The City Council also helps to connect the community and the city government, integrating citizens’ voices into policy.  City Council is committed to informing citizens and actively engaging residents, second homeowners, and businesses in identifying community issues and finding solutions. The Council invites and encourages citizen involvement in the development of City programs and services.

A resident is eligible for an elective office of the City if at the time of the election he/she is a qualified elector within the meaning of the state constitution and has resided in the City during the twelve months immediately preceding the elections.

The City Council meets the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm at Wheeler City Hall, 775 Nehalem Blvd., Wheeler, Oregon. The public is encouraged to attend all City Council meetings. To be added to the agenda, or submit documents for a City Council meeting, the deadline is 4:30 pm the Wednesday before the meeting. If you have any questions, please call the City Manager, Juliet Hyams, at 503-368-5767 or by e-mail at (citymgrwheeler@nehalemtel.net).
