Which of the following is true of the strong mayor-council form of city government? The responsibilities of the mayor are mostly ceremonial. The mayor has total administrative authority. The city council must approve the mayor's decisions. The city council has the power to appoint the mayor.
I would say the third option. They are given total admisistrative power and a wide range of politcal independece. They have the power to appoint and dismiss departments heads without council approval. They also prepares and admisters the city budget, although they would need approval from the council.hope I helped. :)
