Structure

Mirroring national and provincial government, the City of Johannesburg is made up of a legislative arm (the council); an executive arm (consisting of the executive mayor and the mayoral committee); and an administrative arm.

Council

The council focuses on legislative, oversight and participatory roles, delegating its executive function to the executive mayor and the mayoral committee. The council's principal role is as lawmaker, with the other key role to debate and discuss issues.

The council approves by-laws, City policies, the Integrated Development Plan, tariffs for rates and service charges, and the City's budget.

It also has an oversight function and receives regular reports from the executive mayor and the mayoral committee.

The primary duty of councillors, particularly ward councillors, is to represent the needs and interests of their constituents. They are responsible for building community involvement, with ward committees playing an important role in providing information on the needs and interests of local communities and ensuring that public voices are heard.
