The City Council consists of 10 City Councilors and the Mayor, who chairs the meetings and only votes in the event of a tie. The Mayor is elected at-large and two of the 10 City Councilors represent one of the City's five neighborhood wards. Thus, each resident of Roswell is represented by the Mayor and by two City Councilors. The Mayor and City Council serve staggered 4-year terms.
