Bartlesville is a charter city with a council/manager form of government. The city manager oversees all City operations and is responsible for all departments and employees, with the exception of the City’s attorney, municipal judge and treasurer, which, along with the city manager, are appointed directly by the City Council.
The City Council consists of five members — one from each ward of the city — who are elected every two years by the voters in their ward. While each member must reside in the ward they represent, the mayor and vice mayor are selected by the sitting council during the first meeting of each term. Council members, including those serving as mayor and vice mayor, do not receive a salary but are paid a modest stipend to cover minor expenses.
Mayor Dale Copeland, Ward 1
Vice Mayor Jim Curd Jr., Ward 3
Paul Stuart, Ward 2
Trevor Dorsey, Ward 5
(The Ward 4 seat is currently open.)
The City Council is required by City Charter to meet on the first Monday of each month. Special meetings are called as needed. Meetings are held at City Hall, 401 Johnstone Ave. The meetings are open to the public and anyone may attend.
For more information, see City Council.
