 The City Council is the governing body of the City of Upland and has the authority to make all laws and regulations with respect to municipal affairs subject only to the limitations of the State and Federal Constitutions. The City Council approves all ordinances, resolutions, and most contracts.

The City Council is an elected five person governing body.  The Mayor is elected independently with the same voting power as other members of the Council.  City Councilmembers each serve four-year terms with elections every other year; therefore, three Councilmembers are elected at one election and the Mayor and one Councilmember at the other.

The City Council appoints the City Manager to oversee day-to-day operations and City Attorney who advises Council on legal matters, each of whom serve at the City Council's discretion.  The City Council establishes policies of the City, which are implemented by staff under the direction of the City Manager.
