Overview

The City Council is the city's governing body. In general municipal elections, its members are elected at-large to four-year overlapping terms. The Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem each serve one-year terms and are selected annually by the City Council at its first regular meeting in December. The Mayor, who represents the City of Menlo Park at ceremonial and public functions, also serves as the presiding officer of the City Council.

Email the City Council
To express your comments and opinions about a topic, you can email the entire City Council.

Please Note: All communications to the City Council and/or city staff are public records subject to the California Public Records Act (CPRA). Emails sent to this address are provided to the local media and are posted on the city's website for public viewing. The email address of the sender is not disclosed on the website for security purposes. However, information contained in the body of the email, including personal contact information, can be viewed and retrieved through a search. Each City Council member also directly receives email sent to this address.

This feature is designed to allow public viewing of City Council email. The process by which emails sent to the City Council are posted on this site is automated. Sometimes formatting within the body of the email is lost during this automated process, making messages harder to read. Typically, formatting is easier to preserve if formatted materials are sent as attachments rather than in the body of the email. However some viewers of this City Council email site may have difficulty opening attachments. If you notice that the formatting of a message is unclear, please email the City's Information Technology staff.

It is the city's practice to remove SPAM (unsolicited bulk email) email from the Council email log. If you believe your email has been removed in error, please email the City's Information Technology staff.
