City Council

As the Legislative body of the City, the City Council serves as the link between the citizens of Boston and their municipal government. Through the filing of legislation, the enactment of orders, ordinances, and resolutions, the Council actively represents the diverse interests of Bostonians while ensuring the efficient and cost effective delivery of services. The Council fulfills its obligation as the appropriating authority by analyzing appropriations and loan orders.
