Frankenmuth officially became a city on October 1, 1959 after a vote of the people approved the measure. Prior to that time, the village was organized as a village (January 14, 1904) and prior to that a Township, on January 3, 1854.)

The City of Frankenmuth is directed by a City Council made up of its Mayor and six Council members. The Mayor is elected every two years and Council members serve four year terms. The City Council appoints a manager to operate the daily affairs of the City.  More information on City Council and the Mayor is available here.

The City is governed by a City Charter, along with general ordinances and a zoning ordinance. It is the collective work of staff, City Council and numerous boards, committees and commissioners that do the work of the City.
