Sarasota municipal government was last incorporated in 1913, adopting the city type of local government found in the United States. The title of its government is City of Sarasota and it is governed by a five-person commission elected by popular vote, two members of which serve in the ceremonial positions of mayor and vice-mayor as chosen by the commission every April. Sarasota later was designated as the county seat when Sarasota County was carved out of Manatee County in 1921 during the creation of several new counties.
Many aspects of the city are overseen by the county government ranging from parks, the bay, major waterways, county designated roads, the airport, fire departments, property and ad valorum taxes, voting, the health department, extension services, storm water control, mosquito control, the courts, the jail, libraries, and schools therefore election of county commissioners is important to city voters.
