The neighborhood council is a precious relay between the administration, the elected officials and the population whose grievances are traced back. The neighborhood council is an apolitical consultative body of the community, it has no decision-making power. The President of the Territorial Council may seek his opinion on decisions affecting the district.
The neighborhood council is a place of exchange and reflection on the life of the neighborhood and the means implemented to improve the living environment of the inhabitants. It remains a force of proposal near the Community. District Councils are elected for a period of 5 years and must be renewed at each new term of office.
