View the Charter for the City of Victorville.
The City operates with a council-manager form of government, where the City Council appoints the City Manager. The City Manager is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the City and to ensure that the policies developed by the City Council are executed. The City Council also appoints a City Attorney who is responsible for advising the City Council on legal issues affecting Victorville.
How can I obtain a copy of a City Ordinance?
All City ordinances are contained in the Victorville Municipal Code (VMC). The Victorville Municipal Code is available online and is fully indexed and searchable.
How do I address the City Council and/or express my concern for an item not on the agenda?
Every City Council meeting provides time for a Public Comment period. This is your opportunity to address the Council on any subject matter that is within the jurisdiction of the City Council that does not appear as a regular agenda item. To do this, before the City Council meeting begins, complete a white speaker card, indicate Public Comment and hand it to the City Clerk. The Mayor will call your name during the Public Comment period of the meeting. The speaking time limit for public comment is 3 minutes or as determined by the Mayor. The City Council is not permitted (by law) to take any action on issues raised during the Public Comment period, but they may refer matters to staff for a response or official action at a future date.
How do I address the City Council about an item on the agenda?
Before the City Council meeting begins, complete a white speaker card, indicate the agenda item number you will be speaking on and hand it to the City Clerk. The Mayor will call your name when the Council gets to that item on the agenda. The speaker cards are kept with the official record of the City Council meeting and are used if the City Council or staff needs to contact you at a later date if you choose to provide your contact information.
How do I get access to the City Council agendas?
There are three ways:
1. View Council Meeting Agendas and Meetings on our website.
2. You can be added to the Agenda Notification Distribution list by emailing your request
3. Provide a supply of self-addressed stamped envelopes to the City Clerk and we will mail
you a copy of the agenda index (without attachments)
Which City Council Member represents my area?
The members of the Victorville City Council are elected "at large" and not by districts or wards. What this means is that each Councilmember represents the entire City and not just one area or neighborhood.
When and where are the City Council meetings?
The meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall, 14343 Civic Drive, Victorville.
