What Form of Government Does Ponce Inlet Have?
Ponce Inlet has what is known as a “Council-Manager” form of government, as outlined in our Town Charter.
This system of government is used in the majority of American cities. In the council-manager form of government, an elected municipal council is responsible for making policy, passing ordinances, voting appropriations, and having overall supervisory authority in the municipal government. In such a government, the mayor will perform strictly ceremonial duties or will act as a member and presiding officer of the council, similar to a chairperson.
