Mansfield has an elected Executive Mayor who is responsible for the day to day running of the Council's services.
About the Executive Mayor
In 2001, over 5% of Mansfield's electorate signed a petition to request a referendum to propose the council use the Mayor and Cabinet system of leadership. This was accepted and came into effect in 2002.
The Executive Mayor is voted for by local people and serves for four years. The Executive Mayor provides political leadership to the council and the community.
Important decisions are taken by the Executive Mayor or they are delegated to Cabinet members.
Some decisions, such as those contained within the budget and framework policies, require Council approval. The budget is prepared by the Executive and the finalised budget proposals are considered by Council. If Council objects to the Executive's recommended budget, the Executive Mayor must inform Council of any reasons for disagreeing with the objections of Council. The budget will then be reconsidered by Council and at this meeting two thirds of the members of the Council present and voting must vote to approve a budget which is not in accordance with the Executive's proposals.
