CITY COUNCILMunicipal Elections
The Yucaipa City Council is comprised of five Council members with each sharing equal voting powers on all items coming before the Council. Council members are elected by-district to four-year terms, with elections held in November of even-numbered years. The Council meets annually to choose one of its members as Mayor and another of its members as Mayor Pro Tem. The City Council appoints the City Manager and City Attorney and members of all advisory boards, commissions, and committees. The City Council also serves as the Board of Directors for the Yucaipa Successor Agency and as Commissioners of the Yucaipa Housing Authority.
Effective with the adoption of Ordinance No. 348 at the June 27, 2016, City Council Meeting, the City of Yucaipa transitioned from an at-large to a by-district electoral process with respect to electing City Council Members and established district boundaries.
