Farmington Hills operates under the Council-Manager form of government, the most successful and fastest-growing form of government in U.S. municipalities today. The Mayor and six Council members are elected by the community and concentrate on policy issues that are responsive to citizens’ needs and wishes. The City Manager is appointed by Council to carry out policy and ensure that the entire community is being served..

Citizens are welcome to attend City Council meetings and encouraged to actively participate in our government by serving on one of our boards or commissions. For more information about our local government and how you can participate, make a selection from the menu.
