City Commission

Your City Commissioners


The Dodge City commission is made up of five elected Dodge City residents. The commissioners serve four or two-year terms, depending on the amount of votes they receive in the elections. The mayor and vice-mayor are selected annually by the current commissioners. Due to the State Legislature's passage of new election laws in 2015, the Commission approved Charter Ordinance No. 39 removing the local laws establishing elections in April of even numbered years. Per Kansas state laws, elections will be in November of odd numbered years. Additional action was taken to extend the terms of the current Commissioners' terms to coincide with the new election laws.
