City Council Members 

Citrus Heights operates under a council-manager form of government. There are five members of the Citrus Heights City Council. Each member must be a registered voter in the city and was elected at-large. Starting with the 2020 Election, two Council Members will be elected by Districts with the remaining three Council Members to be elected by Districts in 2022. Until a Council Member is elected by Districts, they remain "at-large." The Council selects one of its members to serve as mayor for a period of 12 months. Additional information is available on the Transitioning to District Based Elections webpage.

Elections to select Council Members are held on the 1st Tuesday after the 1st Monday in November of even numbered years.

You may contact council members individually or email the City Council.
