Weston City Commission

The Weston City Commission is comprised of five members:  the Mayor and four Commissioners.  The Mayor and Commissioners are elected at-large by a plurality vote, meaning the candidate with the highest number of votes wins the seat.  Although the Commission seats are separated into districts, all registered voters in Weston can vote for each seat.  There are no run-off elections.

By City Charter,  the Mayor and Commission are limited to serve two consecutive four-year terms.   An individual can once again become a candidate after having not served in that elected seat for one full term.  A Commissioner that has served two consecutive terms is still eligible to run for the position of Mayor immediately following his/her term.  Likewise, a Mayor having served two consecutive terms may be a candidate for Commissioner immediately following his/her Mayoral term.

Compensation for the position of Mayor is $13,000 annually, and for the position of Commissioner is $10,000 annually, and is set by the electorate of the City.
