City Government

The Sargent city government consists of a Mayor and four city council members. An election for Mayor is every 4 years. The next election for Mayor is November 2022. Council members are elected every 4 years with two alternating council members.

The mission of the Council Board is to represent the public interest, promote quick, courteous response to residents' problems, provide leadership and direction to the town's future and ensure the present and future fiscal integrity of the municipal government.

The City of Sargent encourages all new citizens to stop by the City Office. This website offers some of the forms that you will need to fill out and send into the office.

If you are interested in running for office please contact the Sargent City Office. They will be able to tell you the qualifications for Mayor and Council Members and make sure you are on the voting ballet.
