When is the deadline to file the application?

Monday, August 21, 2023 5 p.m. - but keep in mind, the application has to be reviewed and approved by the City Secretary and if a new application has to be completed, you need to leave time to complete and still turn it in before the deadline.

What kind of time is demanded of a Mayor or a Council Member?

Mount Enterprise has a full time City Secretary that administers the wishes of the council. Generally, council members are needed the last Tuesday of the month from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (sometimes more or less - depending on the amount of items on the agenda and if there are public hearings, workshops, etc.). Very rarely a council member may have to help with surveys in the community. There are also training sessions that can be involved to keep you aware of your legal role. A mayor may have more time spent in the office to approve invoices, sign checks, provide leadership and direction to staff based on the council's recommendations and instructions.
