The mission of the Fort Lauderdale City Commission
is to represent the public interest, promote quick,
courteous response to residents' problems, provide
leadership and direction for the City's future, and
assure the present and future fiscal integrity of
the municipal government.
The City of Fort Lauderdale has a Commission-Manager
form of government. Under this form of government,
the elected City Commission sets policies for the
operation of the City. The City Commission consists
of five members: the mayor and four district commission
members. The administrative responsibility of the
City rests with the City
Manager, who is appointed by the City Commission.
The four commissioners are elected by individual
districts; the mayor is elected at large. Each serves
a three-year term.
