Government Structure and Services
Since July 1, 1961, the City has operated under a Mayor-Council form of government. Under this form of government, the City Council consisted of seven (7) Council members originally all elected at-large. In 1994, the City opted to modify the form of government to better address the changing needs of the citizenry. To that end, the City of Camden was divided into four (4) councilmanic districts, instead of electing the entire Council at-large. One Council member was elected from each of the four (4) districts.
