The City of New Smyrna Beach operates under a Commission-Manager form of government. The City Commission, consisting of a popularly elected mayor and four zone commissioners, is responsible for legislative functions such as establishing policy, passing ordinances, adopting regulations, and developing an overall vision. The Commission also appoints a professional city manager to oversee administrative operations, implement its policies, and advise it.

The mayor serves a two-year term and commissioners each serve four-year terms.
