Your Elected Officials

The City of Payette has a mayor-council form of government, with city elected officials working part-time.

Elected officials serve four-year terms, with elections for three of the council seats held every two years

and the Mayor's seat once every four years. 

All elected officials are non-partisan and Council positions are awarded to the

three candidates receiving the highest number of votes.


Regular Council meetings are held on the first and third Monday of each month,

and convene at 7:00 PM in Council Chambers at Payette City Hall,

700 Center Avenue, Payette.


Strategic Plan 2016-2017

Strategic planning is the process an organization follows to articulate a vision for the future and establish a direction in making decisions and allocating resources to achieve the desired outcomes. Payette’s successful strategic planning process is a credit to the participation of the entire community.

With the hundreds of responses to our online survey, the Strategic Plan articulates our municipality’s strategic direction and community expectations,

while prioritizing actions that our elected Council and administration will focus on in the immediate term.

The Payette City Council met over several meetings in 2016 to create a new strategic plan to set the course for the City,

a flexible document that will be periodically reviewed for updates.
