The Vestavia Hills City Council has four “places” with the Mayor presiding. Vestavia Hills has a Council-Manager form of government in which the Council’s role is policy-making and considering those actions which require Council approval, and daily operations of the City are the responsibility of the City Manager. The Mayor and the four members of the Vestavia Hills City Council are elected “at large”, meaning that each represents all residents of Vestavia Hills rather than those of a particular geography. Additionally, the Mayor and Council members may address any issue, i.e. you may approach any of them with your comments or concerns.

The City Council meets in regular session the second and fourth Mondays of each month except on certain holidays and in case of inclement weather. There is also a Council work session with the Council the third Monday of each month. All meetings are open to the public and begin at 6pm. An open public comment session is held at the end of each regular Council meeting; comment may only be made at the invitation of the Mayor during the Mayor’s Meeting. For more information about these meetings, contact City Clerk Rebecca Leavings at rleavings@vhal.org or 205.978.0131.
