    Westwood City will no longer be a privately owned city but rather a government city with an elected city council.
    The City Council will be consisted of 5 players who serve "life terms" (until resignation or dismissal). The council's main responsibility is to run the city and make day-to-day decisions on policy regarding it. The decisions by the Council will be subject to veto by Cabinet and Parliament.

    The 5 players will chose a leader among themselves who will be known as the Mayor and be the official Chief Executive of the city. Vacant positions in the Council will be filled by the Mayor nominating a player to the City Council, then Cabinet, and finally Parliament for approval.

    While the Government will be the official landlord of the city plots, the Mayor will be able to request monthly bonuses (handled by the Minister of Public Affairs and Cabinet) from the revenue gained by selling plots for the Mayor and other members of the Council.


    City Council Elections
    The process of electing the 5 Councillors begins today.

    First, some rules and requirements:
    • Cannot be a Councillor for another city or town;
    • Must be an active member of the community and a part of the Discord;
    • Joined at least 1 month ago;
    • At least 1 day worth of playtime;
    How elections work:
    • If interested in the position of Councillor, reply to this thread with the following:
      • Username:
      • Date joined server:
      • Playtime:
      • Why you want to be a Councillor:
    • From June 4th until June 8th, anyone who meets the requirements can reply to this thread and become an official candidate.
    • On June 8th (the starting day of Parliamentary elections), a poll will be created that lasts for 3 days.
    • In those 3 days, all members of BusinessCraft will cast their vote for up to 5 candidates they want to run the newly established government city.
    • After the voting period is concluded, the winners will be announced.
    (!) Notice: The position of Councillor is not an official job and will not replace your server job (like Farmer, Tour Guide, Constructor). Councillors can still run for positions like Parliament, be Judges or Ministers. (!)

    • Why you want to be a Councillor: When Westwood became under leadership of Fhlown and Blitz, I was an early supporter of the city and served as Staff and later Councillor of the city. I tried my best to help with planning and design of it. I believe I can do that again just as well with the knowledge I built up of the city/area. It will be my joy to serve one of the newest areas of BC!

    • Why you want to be a Councillor: I am excited to hear that Westwood is now a government-run city! I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to make Westwood a more charming and bustling city than it already is. It is my hope that, as councilor, I can help make decisions beneficial to the city and maybe even give it somewhat of a makeover.

    • Why you want to be a Councillor: Ever since this city was put up for auction, I have been apart of it, even choosing its new name. I saw great things for this city but over time I things started to fall apart and I was pushed away from it all. I still had dreams for Westwood, and now is the perfect time to make things happen. I am very happy to hear that the city is actually taking a good path and I would love to do anything I can to help this city become the thriving place that I, and many others dream of!

    • Why you want to be a Councillor: I have always been good at running things and have always wanted to run a company or city, this city has a chance to be great and I think I can help it on its way to becoming a true city with my skillset. I have been told my whole life I am extremely creative so I think I could help out with building designs. I am good at math which could help if there is any role in financing. I believe that I could be a great addition to the city council as a whole.

    • Why you want to be a Councillor: I wish to join the Council of Westwood cause I can bring valuable insight to the planning and building city. I’m a decent builder and can use that to effectively plan out the city and make it a bit easier to explain to our city constructor what we need done.
