The City of Clyde, as provided in the City Charter, is a Council-Manager Government. Council enacts local legislation, adopts budgets, determines policies, and appoints a Manager.
Clyde City Council is made up of 5 council members at large, each elected to four-year terms. Council nominates a mayor and vice mayor each year to run the council meetings and serve in social functions.
Each year at the organizational meeting of Council, the mayor and vice mayor are chosen by the concurrence of a majority of Council. The mayor, in addition to his powers, rights, and duties as a council member, presides at all council meetings and is recognized as the official head of the municipality for all ceremonial purposes, by the Governor for military purposes, and by the courts for the purpose of serving civil process. The vice-mayor performs the same duties, in the absence of the mayor.
- How long is a Council Member’s term?
Four Years. Elections for members of Council shall be non-partisan and shall be conducted on the first (1st) Tuesday after the first (1st) Monday in November in the odd-numbered years, by the regular election authorities of Sandusky County. (Charter 3-2)
- How much does a City Council member get paid?
City Council's last raise was approved by the voters in 2007 after the Charter Review Committee proposed an amendment to increase Council's monthly salary and put the proposal on the ballot.
Currently, City Council members are paid a fixed $400 per month, as prescribed by the City's Charter. The Mayor's salary is set by Council at the annual reorganizational meeting.
Members shall be paid a salary set by Council by a majority plus one affirmative vote at its annual organizational meeting. Such salary shall be four hundred dollars ($400.00) per month, payable bi-weekly or the minimum monthly salary necessary to qualify for Public Employee’s Retirement System.
(Amended November 6, 2007) (Charter 3-1)
