The Mayoral system

The City has a Mayor and four Deputy Mayors elected for the duration of the Council term.

The Mayor leads the City and serves as chairperson of the City Board. The City Council elects a Mayor for an electoral period, i.e. the time between two local elections.

The Deputy Mayors serve as chairpersons of the division committees and are members of the City Board. The City Council elects from among the councillors Deputy Mayors for a term as long as an electoral period.

The four city divisions are Social Services and Health Care, Education, Urban Environment and Culture and Leisure.

The Mayor and Deputy Mayors each manage, supervise and develop the City administration in their respective fields of responsibility, ensuring that the objectives defined for the operations are achieved.
