The city council prepares its policies, which means that together they come up with goals and rules. Then the policies are carried out by the city council members. For example, the municipality ensures that the trash is collected or that broken street lights are replaced. They decide how the trash can best be divided and processed and if the light bulbs in the street lights should be energy-saving ones. The council also decides about subsidies that will be given, so if you want to organize a cultural event then you know where you will need to be. And unlike in other countries, resulting to bribery is not needed!
