Wetaskiwin city council is the legislative body that represents the citizens of Wetaskiwin. The mayor and six councillors provide leadership and establish policies and priorities for Wetaskiwin’s municipal government. Members of council are responsible for the overall direction of the municipality through their role as policy-makers. Policies set by city council are guidelines for administration to follow as it handles the daily operations of the municipality. They also establish the budget for civic operations and capital expenditures.
Wetaskiwin residents vote for their mayor and councillors in a general election held every four years. The current council was elected in October 2021.
