University Heights Mayor and City Council
Go to University Heights Staff

Request Public Information

The most common form of city government in Iowa is the mayor-council form and that is the type of structure in place for the City.  The number of council members elected at large in the mayor-council form of government must be an odd number but not less than five.  University Heights utilizes five council members with each member chairing a particular committee or being a member of a committee.  The mayor is not a member of the council and therefore does not have voting powers at the council meetings.
