The Charter for the City of Midland was submitted to the City Council by the Charter Committee on August 22, 1940, and was adopted by election on November 5, 1940. The Charter is the formal document adopted by Midland, as a home rule city, to provide the full power of local self-government. It describes the city’s governmental and proprietary powers; defines its form of government; establishes its administrative structure; establishes the authority for annexation of land; granting of franchises and other functions; and provides for controls such as initiative, referendum, and recall.
The City of Midland is served by Mayor Wes Perry in addition to six representatives on the City Council.
