The City of Mulberry operates under a council-manager form of government. This means that City Commission establishes the vision of the community through directives and policy decisions and they then appoint a person to implement that vision.

The primary responsibility of the local government manager is to implement the policies of the elected officials for whom they work. In council-manager government, the manager assumes responsibility for preparing the annual budget, hiring and firing personnel, and directing day-to-day operations. In addition to supervising the local government’s daily operations, managers work with elected officials and citizens to plan for the future of the community to define and carry out the vision of the community by setting goals and establishing strategies for reaching these goals.

Commission meetings for the City of Mulberry are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00pm.
