Mission


Our mission as the legislative body of the city is to maintain fiscal stability and provide the necessary ordinances for the good of the city and its residents.


Legislative Powers


Legislative powers of the city are vested in the Agawam City Council which consists of 11 members who are elected citywide. The City Council holds public hearings, passes ordinances, financial orders and resolutions, oversees and approves all financial appropriations and the adoption of the annual Operating Budget. Members serve on standing committees which study and review these matters as necessary. Councilors also respond to individual problems and complaints from citizens.

Except as otherwise prohibited by law or the Charter, all powers of the city shall be vested in the City Council which shall provide for the exercise thereof and for the performance of all duties and obligations imposed on the city by law.

Meetings


All City Council meetings are open to the public. Meeting minutes are kept in the City Clerk's Office and on the town website for public inspection. Citizens may speak at City Council meetings and must sign up to speak prior to the start of the meeting.

The City Council generally meets at 7 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of each month in the auditorium of the Roberta G. Doering School, 68 Main Street, Agawam 01001. All meetings are subject to Open Meeting Laws.
