The Willows City Council is composed of five council members elected to staggered four-year terms. There is an election each November of even numbered years. In cases where a council member is unable to complete a term, the Council can appoint a replacement, but that position will be subject to a vote at the next general election.

The Council selects a mayor and vice mayor from among its members to serve a one year term. The mayor presides over the council meetings, which are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. Council meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers located at 201 N. Lassen Street in Willows.

In addition to the regularly scheduled meetings, council members attend numerous additional committee meetings.
