Function

The City Commission is the legislative branch of the municipal government, and it is comprised of a Mayor and four Commissioners, each elected at-large, in even-numbered years, to staggered four-year terms. The Mayor and Commissioners elect the Vice-Mayor from their own membership.


The City Commission is responsible for enacting all ordinances and resolutions that establish City policy and ensures the performance of all duties and obligations imposed upon the City by law. Also, the City Commission is responsible for adopting the annual budget and hiring the City Manager, City Attorney and the City Clerk. The City Commission holds its Regular Commission meetings on the first and third Wednesday of each month.


The City’s Mission, as established by the City Commission, is: “The City of Hallandale Beach is committed to providing those core services that ensure and promote public safety and a vibrant quality of life for its residents, visitors, and businesses.”


To that end, in preparation for the development of the Budget, the City Commission hosts multiple budget workshops to discuss the major issues that will be impacting the upcoming budget and to receive valuable input from the residents.


The Commission serves as members of the Board of Directors, enacting policies, and directives in accordance with State Statute, for the following organizations:

  • Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency
  • Golden Isles Safe Neighborhood District
  • Three Islands Safe Neighborhood District

Additionally, the City Commission appoints members of City Advisory Boards. The individual Commissioners may also serve on other committees and boards as required by law, rule, or appointment.


  • Enact Ordinances and Resolutions establishing public policy and ensuring the performance of all duties and obligations imposed upon the City by law.
  • Adopt a responsible and responsive Annual Budget, including a 5-year Capital Project Plan and a 3-year City Strategy Plan.
  • Maintaining and enhancing the financial health of the City.
  • Responding to resident and business inquiries in a timely manner.

In addition, the City Commission has established three values that also guide staff during the budget process. These values are designed to address fiscal stabilization, communication and trust, and accountability to meet the Community’s expectations and build on its strengths.
