City websites run by the local municipal governments list the names of city council members, both past and present. Third-party websites, including websites of local political parties, also commonly list the names of current and past city council members.
Online resources provide the fastest access to information about local city governments. If online resources are not available or you prefer printed media, consulting your local government directly is best option. Not all city government structures, especially in smaller rural areas, include city councils or refer to the council using an alternative title. In this case, listing of mayoral positions and other city officials is standard.
