"City of York Council is the municipal governing body of the City of York, a unitary authority in Yorkshire, England. It is composed of 47 councillors, one, two, or three for each of the 21 electoral wards of York. It is responsible for all local government services in the City of York, except for services provided by York's town and parish councils.From our offices in West Offices and Hazel Court, and with partners, City of York Council serves over 200,000 residents in and around York. Local communities depend on the statutory services we deliver and our people are proud to keep York clean, safe, productive and resilient. A strong council can also be an empowering force - transforming lives, communities and generations. We deliver lots of important but little-known services that are making a big difference to those who need them."
