The Folsom Charter establishes the Folsom City Council as five members elected at large by the voters of the City.
The terms of councilmembers are four years and begin the second Monday in December following their election. Terms are staggered, with three councilmembers being elected at one election and two councilmembers being elected at the next election. The City Council selects a mayor and vice mayor each year. Pursuant to the Folsom Municipal Code, Folsom operates under a “council-manager” form of government, with the city manager serving as the chief executive and administrative officer of the city.
