Maize City Council

Maize City Council

Maize is a city of 3rd Class and has adopted the Mayor-Council-City Administrator form of government.  The Mayor is elected for a four-year term and each Council serves a four-year term. The terms are staggered so that every two years, the Mayor and two Councilmember are up for re-election. Serving on the City Council is considered a part-time duty. The majority of Council members have full-time jobs in addition to their City Council duties.

Maize City Council meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m.  at the Maize City Hall Complex.  The City Council occasionally holds special meetings or continued meetings when required.  These meetings, like all other meetings excluding executive session, are open public meetings. Under State law, certain items may be discussed in executive session, which are of a legal or personnel nature. These items are defined by state law.  The City Council conducts the business of the city by voting on ordinances, resolutions, applications, plats, zoning petitions, receiving reports and other items.

The City of Maize adopts a annual budget for the City.  Additionally, the City administers the Maize Park Cemetery District.  Both Budgets are available by following the links below:
