Are all Council-Manager governments structured the same?

No. One of the most attractive features is that the Council-Manager form is adaptable to local conditions and preferences. For example, some communities have Councils that are elected at large while other Councils are elected by ward or by a combination of an at-large and by-ward structure. Some local governments have Mayors who are elected by the voters at large; others are elected by their colleagues on the Council. City of Klamath Falls City Council members are elected by their five individual Wards and the Mayor is elected at large by the entire City.
