The Municipal Council is the legislative body of the City of Newark. The council enacts by ordinance, resolution, or motion the local laws which govern the City of Newark. The Municipal Council is responsible for approval of the municipal budget, approval of certain Mayoral appointments,  and official policies of the City of Newark. By these methods the Council decides “what” the city will do about any particular matter, and then the Mayor and cabinet members decide “how” to do it.

A special meeting of the Municipal Council may be called by the President or a majority of its members or by the Mayor whenever an emergency requires immediate action. *Click the images to learn more about each of the Municipal Council members.
