The legislative power of the City Government is vested in and exercised by Council and in accordance with the Optional Third-Class Charter Law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Every Legislative act of Council is done by Ordinance or Resolution. City Council enacts all laws of City government and authorizes expenditures of City funds. The Council is comprised of five members, elected at-large, with members serving four-year terms. The Council assembles on the first Monday of January following the regular municipal election to reorganize and elect a president to preside over meetings and perform other duties as prescribed by the Council.

Legislative sessions are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month, except when such Tuesday is a legal holiday observed by the City Government, summer recess, or when the general and/or primary elections fall on such Tuesday, then the regular meeting will be held on the following day or on such other day as the Council shall designate. Council may also meet on other days and times as posted.
