City Council meetings take place the first and third Monday of each month at 7 p.m., and meetings are being held virtually as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. If Monday is holiday, the meeting occurs the following Tuesday. The San Rafael City Council consists of our at-large Mayor, Kate Colin, known as "Mayor Kate", and four district councilmembers: Vice Mayor Rachel Kertz, Maribeth Bushey, Eli Hill, and Maika Llorens Gulati.
The mission of the City of San Rafael is to enhance the quality of life and provide for a safe, healthy, prosperous and livable environment in partnership with the community. Our vision for San Rafael is to be a vibrant economic and cultural center reflective of our diversity, with unique and distinct neighborhoods in a beautiful natural environment, sustained by active and informed residents and a responsible innovative local government.
