  Inside City Government

Serving the citizens of Sarasota with excellence and pride, city government officials and employees are dedicated to providing the leadership and the services that keep Sarasota at the forefront of Florida's best communities.

The City of Sarasota is governed by a "Commission - Manager" form of government. There are five City Commissioners, two are elected at-large and three are elected from single-member districts. All elections are nonpartisan. On the Friday following the second Tuesday in April of each year, the Commissioners select a Mayor and Vice Mayor.
