Chicago Government Agencies

The city of Chicago uses a mayoral government system. It also functions as the county seat of the Cook County. The constitution makes provision for a Mayor of Chicago who is chief executive of the city and the head of the city's executive arm of government. The Mayor is elected to office after a general election to serve a term of four years, and there are no caps on the number of terms that the Mayor can run for. The legislative arm of the city is the City Council which has 50 aldermen as members. Each of the aldermen is elected from a ward.
