Ashland has a Council-Manager form of government, with much of the City's business evolving through citizen committees that enhance public support and political stability.
The City Council is elected to serve as the governing body for Ashland's residents. The Mayor, who presides at the Council meetings, is elected at-large for a four-year term. Six Council members are elected at-large for four-year staggered terms.
Council meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 1175 E. Main Street. The Study Sessions are held the day before each regular meeting (typically the first and third Monday) at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers.
