Elections

The City of Grass Valley General Municipal Elections are held in November of even-numbered years. Other special elections may be called from time to time by the City Council. City Council Members are elected at large for a four-year term. The Mayor is selected by the members of the Council. The Council makes nominations for Mayor from their fellow Council Members and then a vote is taken.  The City Council serves staggered terms, i.e., two or three seats are open each election cycle. Nomination papers to seek office are available from the City Clerk’s office prior to each election.

Public Hearing Notices

Public Hearing Notices are posted at City Hall and generally published in The Union newspaper at least 10 days prior to the meeting. The notice describes the topic of the hearing, and the date, time, and location of the meeting.   

The purpose of a public hearing is to provide an opportunity for any member of the public to provide comments (public testimony) on the noticed item. If you do not wish to speak or are unable to attend the meeting you can provide 10 copies of your written comments to the City Clerk prior to the meeting.
