The City Council is the Legislative Branch of government and is composed of seven (7) elected members serving two year terms. Council President elect represents the city as a whole and six (6) members are elected by the residents of each of the six council districts within the City of Troy. The City Council as a body meets on the first Thursday of every month.
The City Council works with the Executive Branch of government within the city to enact laws and pass other legislation that serves as a framework for the ongoing operation of city management. Vital to this process is citizen input and Council Members strive to be responsive to their constituents while acting in the best interests of the city as a whole. Much of the work of the City Council is conducted through the Committee Process and monthly meetings with department heads throughout the city. Taxpayers and residents are afforded a formal opportunity to voice their opinions by attending regularly scheduled public hearings before Council Members vote on local laws which change the City Charter. City Council Members are entrusted with the privilege and challenge of helping to improve the City of Troy for the betterment of all its residents.
City Council meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at 7:00pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall 433 River Street. The meetings are open to the public. There is a public forum period before the business portion of every meeting where you can address the Council members and briefly speak your mind on any topic pertinent to city government.
We are currently experimenting with live-streaming Council meetings on the Troy City Council Facebook page. You do not need to have a Facebook account to view the videos.
Otherwise you may watch Council Meetings on Channel 14 at 7:00 P.M. on Monday following the meeting.
