City Council 

The City of Maplewood, Missouri was incorporated as a fourth class city in 1908, to provide fire protection and education for residents. 

In 1978, the City adopted a Charter form of government and created a mayor-council-manager government structure. The Mayor is elected by the community at-large and is the official head of government, representing the City at functions.
