The City Council is composed of five members elected at large by the citizens of Cerritos to serve for four-year overlapping terms. As the City's legislative body, the City Council is responsible to the 51,488 residents of Cerritos for the implementation of all programs and services provided by the City. Annually, the City Council reorganizes, choosing one of its members to serve as Mayor and one of its members to serve as Mayor Pro Tem, both terms commencing in March and continuing for one year.

The City Council acts upon all legislative matters concerning the City by approving and adopting all ordinances, resolutions, contracts and other matters requiring overall policy decisions and leadership. The Council appoints the City Manager, the City Attorney and the City Clerk/Treasurer as well as the various commissions, boards and citizen advisory committees which ensure broad-based citizen input into the affairs of the City.

In reaching policy decisions, the City Council reviews proposals designed to meet community needs and sustain demanded service levels, initiates new programs to upgrade existing services, determines the ability of the City to provide financing for the proposed budget as submitted by the City Manager and oversees the expenditure of all City funds throughout the fiscal year.

Regular City Council meetings are held in the Cerritos City Council Chambers on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. In addition, following public notice, the Council may hold special meetings as may from time to time be appropriate.
