Members of the Piedmont City Council are elected volunteers who serve their community without compensation. Under the City Charter, a councilmember may be elected for no more than two consecutive four-year terms of office. However, after a full term has elapsed (4 years), councilmembers may again run for office. Staggered elections are held concurrent with the statewide general election the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November in even numbered years.
The City Council welcomes community input. City council members do not have offices at City Hall but may be reached at the following numbers:
The Piedmont City Council meets on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 120 Vista Avenue.

Brown Act requires that all agendas be written clearly and in sufficient detail to allow the public to understand the question to be decided by the City Council.
