Presidents are not decisions makers, but ensure that there is full consultation with others councillors on their committee, the full Council, the Mayor and the Director General, and other staff as appropriate. After full consultation, presidents set the overall direction for their files for the 4 year term of Council, establish priorities, create agendas and conduct meetings.
