Queen Creek Town Council

Queen Creek’s town council consists of the Mayor and six elected officials, whom serve four year terms. They are elected on a rotating basis, which means three seats are elected every two years. Their responsibilities include setting public policy, managing the annual budget, negotiating agreements, overseeing the community’s development plans, and creating new codes and ordinances.
