Municipal council

The City Council is composed of councillors elected every six years in communal elections.

These councillors vote on communal regulations and orders, the budget and the accounts. They also elect the Aldermen who, together with the leader of the Council (the Mayor) make up the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (communal executive).

Except when a close session is required Council meetings are public. Citizens can attend but cannot take part in the debates.
