Mayor & City Council

Beatrice has a mayor-council form of government. The Mayor and eight (8) Council Members are elected on a non-partisan ballot.  The Mayor and Council are not full-time officials; they retain their positions in their chosen profession. Since the Mayor and Council do not function on a full-time basis, the City Administrator is appointed to carry out the directives of the Mayor and Council and manage the affairs of the City. This form of government combines the abilities of a professionally trained administrator on a full-time basis with the interested and dedicated services of elected officials.

The Beatrice City Council meets at 7:00 p.m. the first and third Mondays of each month.  Meetings are held in the City Council Chambers, located in the BPS Administration Building, 320 North 5th Street, Beatrice, NE.
