City Commission

The City of McPherson is organized with a three-person pure commission form of government and a city administrator. Pursuant to Charter Ordinance, the City Commission has a Mayor, Commissioner of Streets and Utilities and Commissioner of Public Facilities and Lands. Each member of the governing body is elected city-wide and is directly over specific City Departments. The commissioners are department heads and charged with the oversight of their departments. However, for the governing body to act, such action must be taken in a public meeting and with a majority vote.
