The City operates under a non-partisan Commissioner-Manager form of government.

The City has a five-member Commission whose members are elected by the residents of Atlantic
Beach under a staggered term system that ensures a degree of experience on the Commission at
all times. The Mayor/Commissioner serves a two-year term and votes with the other
Commissioners on all matters brought before the City Commission. The other Commissioners
serve four-year terms.

The City Commission appoints a City Manager who serves as the chief administrative officer for
the City and who is responsible for enforcing the ordinances and resolutions enacted by the City
Commission, overseeing the operations of all City departments and preparing the annual
budget for approval by the City Commission. Florida’s Government in the Sunshine law and
citizen boards and committees, staffed by volunteers appointed by the City Commission, ensure
honest and open government.
