The town council is the representative of the citizens and principal organ of the parish. The council decides on all matters concerning the town, so long as the mayor is not responsible or the town council assigns him with specific matters. The town council consists of the mayor as voting chairman as well as voluntary members (town councillors). The councillors are elected by the residents for a period of five years.

Meetings of the town council take place once a month and, with very few exceptions, are public: visitors can follow the public meetings of the town council in the Ratssaal, the council chambers.
