The city's highest decision-making power is exercised by the City Council, which includes 59 delegates. Members of the City Council are elected in municipal elections every four years.
The City Council usually meets once a month on Mondays starting from 6 p.m. at the Chamber of the City Hall (address Hallituskatu 12). Meetings of the council are public and they are announced on the city electronic bulletin board (in Finnish). It is possible to follow the council meetings on the spot or on Twitter, where the council discussion is conducted with the tag #porivaltuusto (in Finnish).
