The City Council consists of a six-citizen board, with two members for each of Keene's three wards. Three council seats, one from each ward, are up for election every two years. The Mayor is also considered a part of the City Council, though not normally a voting member.


The City Council is responsible for:

  • Adopting the city's Master Plan and annual budget
  • Appointing citizens to various city boards and commissions
  • Approving or rejecting requested zoning changes
  • Considering city resolutions and ordinances
  • Establishing city policies
