Know Your City Series (#3) – Memphis


The Mayor is elected to a four-year term. The Mayor carries out the policies of the City and appoints City board members, officers and division directors, with Council approval. The City’s operating and service departments are organized under the Chief Administrative Officer who is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the Mayor. The Mayor may veto action of the City Council, but a simple majority vote of the City Council can override any veto.
