The City of Sydney and all other councils in NSW operate within a legislative framework determined by the state government.
Our councillors are elected for a 4-year term by residents, businesses and property owners, and the Lord Mayor is popularly elected. The Deputy Lord Mayor is elected by the councillors each year. All councillors represent the entire area as it's not divided into wards.
We consult our communities regularly to seek the opinions of residents, business owners and other interested parties to ensure they play a role in the decision-making process.
