The legislative body of Blue Ash consists of a seven-member Council elected on a partisan basis. Five of the seven Council representatives are elected by ward and two are elected “at large,” giving all electors of Blue Ash the opportunity to vote for three Council representatives. The Mayor and Vice Mayor are chosen by Council from among its membership. All seven members are elected for two-year terms, with Council terms expiring in odd-numbered years.
City Council appoints a Solicitor (legal official), a Clerk of Council, members of citizen boards and commissions, and the City Manager.
