The City of Jenks is divided into six wards with one at-large position. The City Council consists of one member from each of those wards and an at-large member. City Council members are unpaid elected officials. While council members from the six wards must live in that ward, the at-large Council Member will live within the City Limits. All registered voters in the city are eligible to vote on each. Each member is eligible to serve four years, with elections held every two years. The council positions are rotated, so that in one election there are three positions before voters and in the next election four positions.
City Council meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month (pending government holidays) at 7:00 PM in Council Chambers at City Hall.
