About Us

Fond du Lac is a beautiful and thriving community of 44,678 located at the foot of Lake Winnebago. Fond du Lac is a great place to live and work and its recreational opportunities are second-to-none. In addition, Fond du Lac is only an hour away from Green Bay, Milwaukee, and Madison and all those communities have to offer.

Fond du Lac has a council-manager form of government with a seven-member City Council elected for two-year terms. The City Council establishes policy, enacts ordinances, adopts the annual budget and appoints a City Manager to oversee the administration of the City. Prior to adopting policies, the City Council solicits the advice of the City Manager, various advisory boards, and City departments, in addition to conducting its own study of the issues. The City Council also solicits input from the citizens at its public Council meetings.

The City Council reorganizes annually and elects one of its members to the position of Council President for a one-year term. The Council President presides at Council meetings, makes proclamations, and represents the City at various meetings and special events. City Council meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Legislative Chambers of the City/County Government Center, 160 S. Macy St. Meetings are televised Live on Charter Cable Channel 980 and on our City Council Webcasts page. You may also watch previous meetings from our webcast archives.
