City Council

Old City Hall

OLD CITY HALL: Completed in 1881, City Hall is the oldest government building in the state of Oregon and was the home of Jacksonville City Council meetings, City commissions and committee meetings, various community organizations and monthly movie nights until the 2nd Floor Assembly Room of New City Hall was completed.  Meetings are now held at 206 N. 5th St, Bldg. A., Jackonville.

The City Council of Jacksonville is a legislative body composed of a mayor and six councilors elected on a nonpartisan ballot for four-year terms. The Council is responsible for setting policies that are then carried out by the City's various departments. It has the authority to pass municipal ordinances and budgets, make appropriations, set community goals and decide which services the City will provide. 

Regular City Council meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. and Council Work Sessions are regularly held on the third Tuesday of each month at 12;00 p.m. in the New City Hall 2nd Floor Assembly Room.  

Agendas & Minutes

Agendas are available a minimum of 72 hours prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval of the council at the next regular meeting.

We have had some citizens state that they are not able to access the audio files. The City's IT technician has checked the files and they are all functioning. However, he did state that browsers that are out of date may have trouble accessing the audio files. If you are having difficulties, try updating your internet browser.

Municipal Codes

Chapters 1 to 14 of the Municipal code were revised and codified in 2014.
