Mayor & Council biographies

The City of Kelowna is governed by an elected Council comprised of a Mayor and eight Councillors. Councillors are elected for four-year terms and each member represents the city at large.

In British Columbia, the Community Charter and the Local Government Act grant the elected Council the authority to establish policies to guide the growth, development and operation of the city, set budgets and levy taxes to provide services. Council delegates administrative responsibility to the City Manager who oversees City operations.

Citizens should be aware that all written and email correspondence addressed to Mayor and Council become public documents once received by the City.
