Current Mayor of O'Neill

Mayor William Price, Elected 2006, 4 Year Term

The Mayor of the City shall have the general and immediate control over all property and officials, whether elected or appointed, of the City. He/she shall preside at all meetings of the City Council, and may vote when his/her vote shall be decisive and the Council is equally divided on any pending matter, legislation or transaction and the Mayor shall, for the purpose of such vote, be deemed to be a member of the Council.

His/her signature must appear on the City Clerk's minutes of all meetings, and he/she must sign all resolutions which have been passed and warrants for the payment of money when ordered by the City Council; provided, any ordinance vetoed by the Mayor may be passed over his/her veto by a two-thirds (2/3) vote by the members of the City Council, but if the Mayor neglects or refuses to sign any ordinance, and returns it to the Council with his/her objections in writing at the next regular Council meeting, the same shall become a law without his/her signature. He/she shall from time to time communicate to the Council such information and recommendations as, in his/her opinion, may improve the City.

He/she may require at reasonable intervals any City official to exhibit his/her accounts and make reports to the Council on any subject pertaining to his/her office. He/she shall have the power to remit fines or pardon any offense arising under the ordinances of the City. He/she may remove at any time an appointed police officer of the City, subject to the provisions of Section 1-1504 herein.

His/her territorial authority shall extend over all places within five miles of the corporate limits of the City for the enforcement of any health ordinance, and one-half mile in all matters vested in him/her except taxation. He/she shall also have such other duties as the City Council may by resolution confer upon him/her, or in any other matters which the laws of the State of Nebraska repose in him/her.

He/she shall be elected at the city election, and shall serve a four-year term of office. Any candidate for Mayor must have resided within the City for 40 days prior to filing for the said office and must in addition be a qualified taxpayer. (Ref. 17-110 through 17-115, 17-117 RS Neb.)
