Mayor and City Council
The City of Panorama Village operates under a Type A General Law Municipality that was adopted by the citizens of Panorama Village in 1972. The Type A General Law Municipality provides for the election of a city council consisting of a mayor and five council members. The council is charged to “enact local legislation, adopt budgets, determine policies and execute the laws and administer the government of the City.”
The Mayor and Council members are elected to serve two-year terms. The terms are staggered so that one half of the council is up for election every two years. The elections are held in May of each year.
