Los Angeles is a charter city. It operates as the Mayor-Council-Commission form of government. Most employees of the City are bound by the civil service provisions of the City Charter. The new City Charter, updated in 2000, created the Citywide System of Neighborhood Councils, which expanded public participation in City governance.
Its elected government consists of the Los Angeles City Council with 15 City Council members representing 15 city districts, the Mayor of Los Angeles, and several other elective offices. The residents elect Mayor, City Controller, and City Attorney every four years.
Boards and Commissions, and various departments and bureaus, supervised by General Managers, are appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. Examples of executive offices are the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles Fire Department, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
