In 1983 The City of Lawrence voted to change the City Charter. Before this 3rd City Charter the governing body of the city was composed of a mayor and a board of aldermen. The new city charter changed the legislative branch to a city council, six district councilmen and three at large councilmen. The new city council and the mayor have governed the city to the present (2008).
