As a whole, the City government conducts its business guided by a set of organizational values and behaviors, in order to best serve its citizens.

City policy is set by seven publicly-elected City Council members that represent Redwood City's population. The Council appoints from its among its members the Mayor, who serves a two-year term, and appoints three City officials - City Attorney, City Clerk, and the City Manager. The City Manager serves as the City administrator and works closely with the City Clerk and the City Attorney in carrying out the Council’s policy direction.
