Troy City Council

The City Council is the Legislative Branch of government and is composed of 7 elected members serving two-year terms. The Council President represents the city as a whole. The remaining members are elected by the residents of each of the six council districts within the City of Troy.

The City Council works with the Executive Branch to enact laws and pass other legislation that serves as a framework for the ongoing operation of city business. The work of the City Council is conducted through Council meetings. Citizen input is vital to this process and Council Members strive to be responsive to their constituents while acting in the best interests of the city as a whole. 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.
