Municipal council

The municipal council is composed of members directly elected by the population. The number of counsellors depends on the number of inhabitants of the municipality. With the 2011 elections the number of councilors for municipalities with 20,000 inhabitants or more was increased to 19, including a mayor and four aldermen or alderwomen.

The municipal council meets regularly under the chairmanship of the mayor and in the presence of the municipal secretary. The meetings of the municipal council are public.
