The City of Painesville operates under the Council/Manager form of government which combines the strong political leadership of elected officials with the strong managerial experience of an appointed manager. 

We believe in open government and invite you to attend City Council meetings, held at 7:30 p.m. the first and third Mondays of the month (except holidays) in Courtroom #1 at City Hall, 7 Richmond Street. You also can watch the most recent and previous meetings ON DEMAND on our website or by clicking here.  Time Warner Cable Channel 12 or 96.12 also broadcasts the most current meeting at 4 a.m., 7 a.m. noon, 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. daily.  Please note: the quality of sound and video is reduced on Channel 12.
