Brussels is just like the other towns of Belgium managed by elected representatives.
These elected representatives are the city councilors. They form the council. The council approves the budget. The agendas and reports and Bulletins with questions and answers of the municipal council are published on the website of the City. The citizens can hear the Board of Mayor and Aldermen if they follow the procedure for the interpellation of the city council.
The governing party, responsible for leading the City, provides a general political program.
This majority can also make municipal plans for issues like development and mobility.
The city approves municipal regulations.
Also in 2013, the City especially invests in the development and renovation of infrastructure (nurseries, schools, and community and sports areas), but also in the development of services for residents (cleanliness and maintenance of public spaces) and the further development of the decentralized services.
