History

The city manager form of government dates back to September 1, 1922. Three councilors were elected that year followed by two more in 1923. [1] Prior to that, Charlottesville had a strong-mayor form of government with a bicameral legislature consisting of a Board of Alderman and a Common Council. [2]
