Belvedere's City Council comprises five council members. Each member serves a 4-year term, with terms staggered so that at most three seats are turned over in any given election. City Council elections are held in the November of even-numbered years to coincide with federal elections.

The position of mayor is not separately elected. Instead, the mayor and vice mayor roles are rotated among council members. Each December, the five council members select a mayor and vice mayor from their ranks to serve for one year.

Although there is no legal limit on the number of terms a council member can serve, the custom in Belvedere is for elected officials to serve not more than two terms (8 years).

The next regularly-scheduled City Council election will be held in November 2024 for the election of three council members whose terms expire in 2024.
