The Pleasant Grove City Council is the legislative body for the city of Pleasant Grove. The five members of the council are elected to four-year terms. They meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month at Pleasant Grove City Hall.

Council members also serve on three-member committees. Current committees include Finance, Personnel, Streets, Public Safety and Risk Management.

In 2018 the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) notified the city that its method of voting at-large may violate Section 2 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The letter prompted Mayor Jerry Brasseale to have city attorney J. D. Terry discuss the matter with the LDF and the Council begin holding public hearings on the possibility of creating electoral districts.
