Sherwood's City Council is made up of a Mayor and six Councilor positions, including that of Council President. The Mayor presides over Council meetings and, in the Mayor's absence, the Council President may substitute in the performance of mayoral duties. The Council members are elected for four-year terms of office through a general election, except when a position is vacated before term completion and filled by special appointment of the Council. The Mayor is elected to a two-year term.  The Council is governed by Sherwood City Charter and adopted Council Rules.

The Council makes appointments to and considers the recommendations of all City Boards, Commissions and Committees; reviews staff reports in conjunction with regular council meetings, participates in the deliberation of agenda items, enacts legislation, and participates in a number of regional meetings and meetings with other government agencies and jurisdictions, as needed.
