A city council, town council, town board or board of aldermen is the legislative body that governs a city, town, municipality or local government area.
Famous quotes containing the words city and/or council:
“When the city gate catches fire, its the fish in the moat who suffer.”
“Daughter to that good Earl, once President
Of Englands Council and her Treasury,
Who lived in both, unstaind with gold or fee,
And left them both, more in himself content.
Till the sad breaking of that Parliament
Broke him, as that dishonest victory
At Chaeronea, fatal to liberty,
Killd with report that old man eloquent;”
—John Milton (16081674)
