City Government

Ashland citizens take pride in their community and it is evident through the efforts of our community leaders. Dedicated volunteer citizens who take the work of government and civic engagement seriously. Ashland has a Mayor/City Council form of government.

The Mayor, who presides at the Council meetings, is elected for a four-year term and with the City Council meets four times monthly in meetings open to the public. For those who wish to view from their homes, the meetings are televised via Ashland’s cable access channel (RVTV), as are Planning Commission and Parks Commission meetings. These meetings are also available online at www.rvtv.sou.edu. The City Council is advised in part by over 20 different advisory boards and commissions comprised of volunteer citizens. The City is always looking for interested citizens to volunteer their time and experience by serving on one of these boards or commissions.  The Ashland Parks and Recreation Department is governed by an elected five-person commission. Contact the City to determine available openings and opportunities at ashland.or.us.
