The City of Bishop has a population
of about 3,900 and is located in the spectacular Eastern Sierra
region of California. Although a small city, Bishop and its
surrounding area is the primary commercial and population center in
the region. Primary
include tourism and recreation, government, and related support
services. However, mining and agriculture are also important
to Bishop's heritage.
Although Bishop's modern economy
thrives, it is unique among desirable small communities because it
stays much like it has for decades – a great place to visit, to
live, and to work.
City of Bishop covers slightly less than two square miles and is
governed by a five member City Council, including a mayor and mayor
pro tem. It accomplishes its duties through five main
departments: police, fire, administration, community services,
and public works.
Bishop welcomes citizen inquiry and
involvement in all city activities. It strives to encourage
this inquiry and involvement through this web site.
