Government

Monrovia’s municipal government dates back to 1887, when the community became the fourth incorporated city in Los Angeles County. Monrovia today is a general-law city with a City Council/City Manager form of government adopted in 1923. It includes a mayor, four council members who are elected at-large and a city manager. The mayor is elected separately every two years and council members every four years. The city clerk and the city treasurer are also elected positions. The city manager is appointed to run the day-to-day operations of this modern community.

A full-service municipality, Monrovia funds and operates its own police and fire departments. Residents are served by a 911 emergency system. The city is the main supplier of water to its residents and businesses. The city also operates the community’s Public Library, parks, and Community Center; regulates trash removal, business licenses, zoning and building permits; cares for the community’s streets and sewers and is involved in a host of community-related projects and programs.
