City Council’s vision for "Lynchburg 2020" provides elected leaders with a shared picture of the desired future for the City of Lynchburg.
1) Council's Vision Statement for the year 2020
Through popular elections on even numbered years, Lynchburg citizens regularly choose the seven members of City Council. With staggered four-year terms of office, City Council is elected on either an At-large (3 members) or Ward (4 members) representational basis. Among their group, the elected City Council members, in turn, choose by simple majority vote a President or Mayor, who serves a two-year term.
As the chief legislative body of the municipal corporation, the City Council conducts regular meetings for the purpose of accomplishing City Charter - prescribed responsibilities and business transactions. City Council meetings are broadcast live on Lynchburg Government Channel LTV 15. Council meetings can also be viewed through our website at: http://www.lynchburgva.gov by clicking on the "View Council" icon.
City Council has two regular meetings each month: the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays.
City Council Chamber, 1st Floor, City Hall, 900 Church Street
4:00 p.m. - Work Session items
7:30 p.m. - Public Hearings and other matters are heard.
