The Mayor and four Commissioners makeup the Board of Commissioners, commonly referred to as the City Commission, and are elected by the citizens to act as their representatives. Their primary duties are to enact ordinances and make policies that are for the ultimate good of the community as a whole. The Mayor is elected to a four-year term and the Commissioners are elected for two-year terms. The Board of Commissioners possess the legislative and executive powers of the City. They each have other occupations in Richmond and serve as Mayor or Commissioner.

Meetings are broadcast live on Government Access Channel 12 (repeated at 9:00pm on the same day) and videos are posted online within 5 days.
