Updated members of the Pico Rivera City Council can be found here.
There are five members serving on the Council.
No, members of the City Council are elected "at large," meaning each one is elected by voters from throughout the entire city and therefore represent all residents of Pico Rivera.
The members of the City Council also serve as the board of directors for the Pico Rivera Water Authority, Finance Authority and the Pico Rivera Housing Authority.
The members of City Council serve four-year terms. Municipal elections are held in odd numbered years on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November. The council terms overlap with three members selected at one election and two at the next.
The Mayor and the Mayor Pro Tem are selected by the City Council from among its own members. The Mayor serves as the presiding officer at city council meetings, with the Mayor Pro Tem filling that role in the Mayor's absence. Both the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem have the same voting power as any other council member.
