Strong- Mayor-Council. Weak-Mayor-Council. Council-Manager System. Mayor-Council: Divides the power between an elected city council and an elected mayor. Council= Passes laws (city’s legislative branch) Mayor=Enforces the laws passed by the council and has the power of veto (city’s chief executive )

Strong-Mayor-Council. Weak-Mayor-Council. Council-Manager. Mayor has a great deal of power and influence over the council. Council makes laws and policies. City manager (hired by council) oversees day-to-day city operations and appoints heads of city departments. Department heads report to city manager who reports to council. Mayor’s powers are very limited. Rarely gets veto power. Mayor is more of a figurehead.
