Council Organization & Members
The City of Bowie operates under the council/manager form of municipal government.  With this structure, the City
Council and Mayor are elected by the citizens.  It is under the direction of the council and mayor to hire a professional
administrator, known as the city manager.  The city manager executes council policy and manages the day-to-day
operations of the city.

The Mayor and six City Council members make up the seven-person council for the City of Bowie.  The entire council
is elected at large by the voters of the city.  Each member serves a staggered two-year term.  The Mayor and City
Council members may serve in their respective seat for a maximum of three consecutive terms.  Regular City Council
elections are held in the November elections.
