Coronavirus measures

The City of Brussels has taken several decisions in order to best respect the measures of the federal government in the fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19). More info: coronavirus measures by the City of Brussels. Please note: at the Administrative Centre & liaison offices, all citizens are asked to come alone, maximum 15 minutes before the appointment time, wear a face mask (obligatory) and disinfect their hands.


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.
