The Kalispell City Council is composed of eight city councilors and the Mayor. The city is divided into four wards with two councilors elected from each and the Mayor elected at large. Each member serves a four-year term of office with the terms staggered.

The greatest responsibility of the City Council lies in its legislative activities, which include:

  • Adopting the budget;
  • Appropriating money to fund the city's programs and services;
  • Enacting ordinances;
  • Establishing policy and levels of service;
  • Setting service fees.

The Mayor presides at all City Council meetings and is a voting member of the council.
