The Board of Aldermen is the city’s legislative branch.  Members are elected every two years (on the odd-numbered years).  Four members serve at large. Seven members represent individual wards. The Board passes ordinances on a broad range of issues, from setting zoning laws to creating boards and commissions. It also has the power to approve or disapprove the Mayor's budget appropriations.
