Prior to the adoption of the present form of city government, the City of Watertown was represented by a Common Council, composed of a Mayor and a Board of Aldermen. These men (the board was composed entirely of males, since women did not yet have the vote) were elected for a two-year term in 1911. This was the first Council with Aldermen representing twelve wards, since in the previous year, the number of wards had been increased from six to twelve.
Mayor - Francis M. Hugo
President of the Common Council - Bailey R. Mearns
