Greater Sudbury City Council is the decision making body for the City of Greater Sudbury as an organization. Its decisions impact how municipal services are provided to citizens.

Council meetings are usually the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month and special meetings may be called by the Mayor or upon the request of the majority of members of Council.
