Auburn City Council

The City of Auburn operates under a Council-Manager form of government. By Charter, the City Council is comprised of the Mayor and seven Councilors. The Mayor is elected by a majority of voters and serves a two-year term. The City’s five voting wards each elect one Council member to represent their ward and two at-large members are elected citywide. All serve two-year terms.

The City Charter grants to the City Council all powers to enact, amend, or repeal rules, ordinances and resolutions relating to the City’s property, affairs and government, to preserve the public peace, health and safety, as well as establishing policy. The Council adopts an annual budget for both municipal and school operations and provides for an annual audit. The Council also appoints the City Manager.

PUBLIC COMMENT

Public comment is an essential part of any local government meeting. It is an opportunity for members of the public to inform the governing body about their views. All meetings of the Auburn City Council, except Executive Sessions, are open to the public, and the public is always invited to participate, with the exception of Council workshops, which are primarily intended for the Council and staff to review and discuss items prior to their appearance on a regular City Council meeting.

The City of Auburn makes it a priority to offer fair and adequate opportunity for the public to be heard, to express opinions and concerns related to the business of the City, and to provide adequate time for the City Council to obtain information and opinions on subjects before it while ensuring that the time allowed for public input does not interfere with the addressing the scheduled agenda.

Whereas Auburn City Hall is currently closed to the public (due to precautions in place to fight the spread of COVID-19) and residents are unable to attend City Council meetings in person, we encourage residents to use one of the following methods to provide public comment. Please be sure to include your name and address, along with your comment, whichever method you use.

  • Send an email to COMMENTS@AUBURNMAINE.GOV (your comments will be included in the meeting minutes
