The Yonkers City Council is the legislative branch of Yonkers and uses a weak Mayor-Council government. The city elects six councilmen, each serving four year terms and an at-large member which is called the City Council president, all serving for four years at a time and subject to two-term limits. Regular meetings are held every Tuesday of the month, with extra meetings to be held other days, if planned.[1] The city is largest in Westchester County, New York and fourth largest in the state.[2]
