City Common Council

Here to Serve the City of Mishawaka

As the legislative body for the City of Mishawaka, the City Common Council is responsible for passing ordinances, resolutions, orders and motions for governing the city. We also control the city’s property, finances and the appropriation of money. These actions are taken at public meetings, which are generally held on the first and third Mondays of the month, in the Council Chambers in Mishawaka City Hall. The public is welcome to attend the meetings and offer comments on our actions.

As elected representatives of the residents of Mishawaka, the members of the council welcome your questions, concerns and comments. Please contact us for additional information and questions.

Council Attorney Mike Trippel works closely with the City Common Council as well as with the City Clerk’s Office and the Mishawaka Legal Department.
