Mayor & City Council
Hermiston uses a “Council-Manager” form of government, similar to the large majority of Oregon cities. In a Council-Manager form of government, all powers of the city are vested in the City Council. The Council, made up of 8 elected Hermiston residents, ultimately decides whether or not the City will take an action on matters concerning the city. The Council hires a City Manager, to manage all of the day-to-day decisions.
The Mayor is elected separately from the City Council, and only votes in the event of a tie. The Mayor appoints committee members and signs ordinances and contracts for the City.
The mayor and councilors may be reached by leaving a message at 567-5521, or writing to them at City Hall, 180 NE 2nd Street, Hermiston, OR 97838, or by email, listed below.
