Is the City of Tustin a General Law or Charter City?
The City of Tustin is a General Law city. The Constitution of the State of California establishes two types of cities: Charter and General Law. At first glance they appear similar as they pertain to day-to-day- operations. A Charter City, however, has considerably more authority than a General Law City to tax, to regulate and to adopt its own procedures and organization. A General Law City, on the other hand, may exercise only those powers expressly given under State law. All cities begin as General Law cities, and the City of Tustin has chosen to remain such.
What type of Government do we have in Tustin?
The City of Tustin has a Council-Manager form of government which consists of an elected City Council responsible for policy making, and a professional City Manager, appointed by the Council. The City Manager provides policy advice, directs the daily operations of City government, handles personnel functions (including the power to appoint and remove employees) and is responsible for preparing the City budget. State law permits two basic forms of government in General Law Cities: the Mayor-City Council and Council-Manager system.
