City Council Overview
The City Council establishes city policy through the enactment of laws (ordinances) and the adoption of resolutions. The mayor and council members are elected “at large”; that is, they do not represent separate districts. Members are elected for 4-year terms at general municipal elections which are held every 2 years, resulting in an overlap in the terms of office on the city council.

The city council also acts as the Successor agency of the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Delano, pursuant to the California Health and Safety Code.

The city council members are elected officers identified in Government Code Section 87200 and file statements of economic interests with the city clerk's office. Copies of the statements of economic interests filed by the above elected officers may be obtained by visiting the offices of the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) or the city clerk. The physical address of the FPPC is:
