Municipal Corporation

The Plenary is the body of maximum political representation of the citizens within the municipal government and is made up of the mayoress and the councillors (it is precisely the mayoress who is responsible for convening and chairing the plenary sessions, although she may delegate one of the councillors).

One of the most important functions of the municipal Plenary, within its tasks of supervision and control of the governing bodies, is the vote on motions of censure and motions of confidence. Likewise, the Plenary is also responsible for agreements relating to the alteration of the composition or boundaries of the municipal district or agreements on the participation of the Town Council in supra-municipal bodies.

The Plenary is also responsible for the approval and modification of by-laws, ordinances, budgets, staffing, municipal regulations, etc. The initial and final approval of town planning procedures is also one of the Plenary’s competences, as well as the transfer of its functions to other administrations or the determination of the way in which the Town Council will manage municipal services.

The Plenary of the Corporation agreed that the periodicity of the plenary sessions will be bimonthly, in even months, to be held on the third Thursday of the month, at 12:00 hours, except in the month of August, which will be held on the last Friday of the month.
