About Rochester City Council

City Council is the nine-member legislative body for the City of Rochester that works in conjunction with the Mayor's Office to pass laws and govern the city. City Council is comprised of five at-large members who represent the entire city and four district members who are the voice for the South, Northwest, East, and Northeast sections of the city.

Council meetings are generally held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m., while committee meetings take place at 4 p.m. on the preceding Thursday. City Council meetings and Council committee meetings are broadcast live each month on City 12 and also streamed online. Due to holidays or other conflicts, this schedule is sometimes subject to change. For a complete listing of live air times of meetings, as well as rebroadcasts, please visit the visit the City 12 page at WXXI.
