The Council consists of five elected officials who hold at-large seats throughout the Village. As per the Village Charter, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes serve four-year terms, while the next highest vote recipient serves a two-year term. The Council appoints the Mayor during its inaugural meeting, typically selecting the individual who received the highest number of votes. The Mayor serves a two-year term within the four-year Council term and subsequently continues as a regular Council member for the remaining two years. Each Council Member has voting rights, with the Mayor serving as the Chair.
As Miami Shores Village operates under a Council/Manager form of government, the day-to-day operations are managed by the Village Manager, while the Council focuses on establishing policies, enacting laws, and appointing members to various Village Boards.
