City Council


The City Council serves as a link between the citizens of Framingham and their municipal government. Councilors help constituents by connecting them to resources, services, and City departments. They serve as advocates for all Framingham residents. Through their work, city councilors ensure that Framingham continues to be a great place to live, work, and play. The City Council is the sole legislative body of the City and is therefore responsible for passing all City ordinances. 

Members & Terms
