City Council

The City of Twentynine Palms operates under a Council-Manager form of government. In that form, the City Council is responsible for adopting all laws and public policies, setting goals, designing strategies, adopting budgets, and giving direction. The Council presides over governance and appoints a professional administrator to carry out the day-to-day management of the City's affairs. The City's legislative authority resides in the Mayor and Council; their power includes all policy-making responsibility for the municipality. In the Council-Manager form of government, the Council decides, and the Manager, as an agent of the Council, acts. The City Manager is charged with the duty of executing the policy decisions of the Council under the direct and close supervision of the Council.
The Twentynine Palms City Council meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall (6136 Adobe Road). For more information, call (760) 367-6799. Council meetings are open to the public. You can sign up to receive the City Council Agendas published online by clicking here.
