Form of Government
The form of government established by the Charter of the City of Chardon is known as council-manager. The representative branch consists of the Council, and possesses legislative powers specified in the Charter.

The Council elects a President of Council, who shall also have the title of Mayor, and a Vice President of Council who shall also have the title of Vice Mayor as herein provided and shall appoint a manager who shall execute the laws and administer the government of the Municipality. The Municipality shall have only such officers as are provided in this Charter or any ordinances enacted hereunder.

Powers
The Municipality has all the powers, general or special, governmental or proprietary, that may now or hereafter lawfully are possessed or exercised by municipal corporations under the Constitution and general laws of the State of Ohio.

The powers of the Municipality shall be exercised in the manner prescribed in the charter, or, to the extent that the manner is not prescribed herein, in such manner as the Council may determine. The powers of the Municipality may also be exercised, except as a contrary intent or implication in this Charter or in the enactments of the Council, in such manner as may now or hereafter be provided by the general laws of the State of Ohio.

Citizen Input
The Chardon City Council welcomes input from citizens regarding issues facing the community. Chardon residents are invited to attend Council meetings to voice their opinion and observe their city government at work. For those unable to attend meetings, letters or emails are also welcome.

While Council policy discourages the public reading of correspondence, copies of letters or emails addressed to Council will be provided to each member. Council thanks you in advance for your interest in the Chardon community.
