At the December 7 City Council meeting, Kasey Castillo was appointed to serve as the city’s mayor. Jeremy Smith was appointed to the mayor pro tem seat. Castillo and Smith were elected to the City Council in 2018.

“I’m excited to continue the momentum that we have going, excited for what 2021 brings our great city, and excited to work alongside our new Council,” said Castillo. “I am grateful for the trust and the opportunity to serve as mayor.”

Smith said his appointment is a blessing and an honor. “Serving our community has been such a blessing and I’m honored to have received the appointment as mayor pro tem from my colleagues. We have so much work ahead of us and I’m excited to take on the challenges that come our way.”

The mayor and mayor pro tem are appointed annually by the members of the City Council. The mayor is the presiding officer at City Council meetings, with the mayor pro tem filling that role in the mayor’s absence. They have the same voting power as any other City Council member.

Council members serve four-year terms. There is no limit as to the number of terms a member can serve. The terms of office are staggered, with two seats filled at one election and the other two seats filled at another election two years later. Canyon Lake City Council members are paid a stipend of $300 per month and an auto allowance of $100 per month.
