City Council / Voter Information


Meetings | Members | Procedures | Wards

Rolla is a Third Class City under Missouri law, and has a Mayor-Administrator-Council form of government. Elected officers and officials of the City are chosen via general election, which takes place on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in April each year, according to the length of their elected term. All eligible voters in Rolla vote for the Mayor, City Attorney, and Municipal Judge positions, and eligible voters within each of the six (6) wards of the City also vote for two (2) council-persons as their elected representatives to the City Council. All other positions within the City government are appointed.

Voter registration is under the jurisdiction of the County Clerk of Phelps County, the state-mandated election authority. Questions regarding voter eligibility and registration should be directed to the County Clerk's office.

Duties and Responsibilities

The City Council acts as the legislative authority for Third Class Cities.  Made up of 12 Council Persons, two from each of the six wards, Council Members serve for two year staggered terms.

Council Members must be at least twenty-one (21) years old, a U.S. Citizen, a city resident for one year, and a ward resident for six months.

The Council acts through the adoption of ordinances, resolutions and motions in establishing all laws, policies, and practices necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of all citizens including the adoption and implementation of the annual budget.

The Council also has the power to compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of papers relating to any subject in which the City has an interest.

Open Citizen Comment Procedures

The following procedures apply to all meetings of the Rolla City Council:

Public Hearings - Any citizen is allowed to ask questions and/or make comments during any public hearing scheduled for a particular issue.

Citizen Communication - Public comment can be provided on any item on the agenda or on issues affecting the City not on the agenda. Public comments should generally be limited to 3-5 minutes. Citizens are encouraged (but not required) to contact City Administration (573-426-6948) one week prior to the meeting, preferably in writing, to be placed on the agenda. Doing so provides City Council an opportunity to give consideration to the issue/comment.
