City Council, Committee of the Whole, and Elected Officials
Batavia is governed by a mayor who is elected by the entire community, and the city council, a group of 14 dedicated alderman and women elected from seven wards throughout the city. All are part-time positions. The council establishes policies for the growth, development and overall quality of life in Batavia.
A full-time city administrator implements those policies with the assistance of over 175 full- and part-time city employees.
