Omaha-Douglas Civic Center
The Home Rule Charter of the City of Omaha was adopted by electors on November 6, 1956. The Charter established a Mayor-Council form of government, with an elected Mayor as chief executive and an elected legislative body known as the City Council. The City Council is composed of seven members known as Councilmembers who are elected on a non-partisan basis to four-year terms.
The City Council has the power to adopt, amend or repeal ordinances necessary to execute or make effective the provisions of the charter. In addition, the City Council has the power to adopt the budget, make or confirm appointments, provide for an independent audit and other necessary actions consistent with the charter.
The City Council meets most Tuesday afternoons beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the Legislative Chambers located on the second level of the Omaha/Douglas Civic Center, 1819 Farnam Street.
