The City Council is the primary governing body of the city. It is responsible for approving the annual budget and passing necessary legislation. Codified Ordinances for the City of Maple Heights can be found here.
The Council meets regularly on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month (except through the summer) at the Maple Heights Seniors Center (map). These meetings are open to the public and begin at 7:00pm. A caucus to discuss legislation is held prior to every meeting at 6:30pm and is also open to the public. The caucus provides a closer look at the working of the City and the Council.
During council meetings, each department gives a report to the Council and each council member has the opportunity to give a report to the citizens. Additionally, the council hears comments from citizens during each meeting. Any citizen is permitted to speak about any concern or topic they desire for a total of three (3) minutes.
Minutes from past Council Meetings can be found here.

24 hours notice of time, place and purpose must be given to the public and media when a Special Meeting is called.
