Mayor & Council Members
Questions about this Topic?

The Aurora City Council is composed of a mayor and 10 council members. Of those 10 members, six are ward council members, representing one of the six wards that section the city. The remaining four council members are elected at large, like the mayor, to represent the entire city. The 10 members of Aurora's city council are part-time elected officials, meaning they may all have jobs in addition to their responsibilities as council members. The mayor's position is a full-time responsibility.

Redistricting Wards
City officials are required by city charter to periodically review the boundaries to ensure that ward sizes are relatively equal. Aurora’s 2012 population is about 335,700 people. Starting in 2013, new ward maps were approved by the Aurora City Council with a deviation in population between the largest and smallest wards of 5.94 percent.
