Cypress County is governed by an elected council with one Councillor elected from each of the nine electoral wards.
The Reeve, or the head of council, is elected by the council members.

Council passes bylaws and policies to make Cypress County a safe and sustainable community. Council appoints themselves and members of the public to various boards and committees to ensure a smooth running organization. A CAO (Chief Administrative Officer) is also appointed to implement council’s direction through an efficient administrative structure.

Residents or business owners who have an issue that they want to discuss directly with Council will need to request permission for a delegation, as detailed in COU 7 using the Delegation Request Form.
Council agendas and meeting minutes are available for viewing on the Minutes & Agendas page.
