Office of the City Council
The City Council routinely meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, with preliminary rules meetings on the first and third Tuesdays. Special meetings may also be called at the discretion of the Council Presidents necessary. The Council's authority is defined in the City Charter; its primary function is to pass or reject the Mayor's budget, approve zoning changes, provide advice and consent to Mayoral appointees and to introduce and approve legislation that affects all Yonkers residents.
