The Newport Beach City Council reviews, directs, and legislates on matters of land use, finance, and general governance. Council members also serve on committees to review specialized areas and make recommendations to the full City Council. Each of the seven members is elected by the entire community to a four-year term and can serve a maximum of two terms.
Every even-numbered year, three to four members residing in separate districts are elected. Each election year, the Council elects two of its members to serve as Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem. The Newport Beach City Council directly employs the City Manager, who serves as the chief executive officer of the City.
The Council regularly meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month in the City Hall Council Chambers. The public is invited to speak on all issues.
