What does a mayor do?

Browse → World → Government

A mayor is an elected person who serves as the head of a city’s government. He or she has many responsibilities and follows a goal of making that city a great place for its residents to live.  

Mayors decide how to spend money on local programs, construction projects, parks, city streets, and other things. At city council meetings, where local officers discuss current and upcoming plans for their areas, the mayor listens to everything and has the power to vote on which plans should be put into practice.   

A mayor is also responsible for making sure that city services, such as the fire department and police department, work well and are helping everyone who needs assistance.
