Council seats are considered part-time positions (although some members make full-time contributions). District members generally respond to constituent concerns in their geographical areas and hold committee leadership positions, while at-large members tend to focus on their specific committee objectives and general constituents concerns.

The Council meets on the first and third Thursday of each month in Council Chambers, located on the first floor of the Louis L. Redding City/County Building, 800 North French Street. Meetings commence at 6:30 p.m. with public comment at 6:00 p.m. In order to participate in public comment, speakers must sign in by 5:45 p.m. Speakers are called to the podium in the order in which they signed in and are allowed 3 minutes to voice their comment.

City Council meetings are aired live on WITN, Channel 22 at 6:30 p.m. and on video replay at 6:00 p.m., the next day, Friday, and Saturday & Sunday at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. This replay allows interested citizens who cannot attend meetings in person to keep abreast of Council business.

FY2016 Cost Savings Survey

Wilmington City Council President Theo Gregory and Council Finance Committee Chair Charles “Bud” Freel are urging residents and business owners to fill out a cost-saving survey to help Council with its decision-making for the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget process.

“As we prepare to review departmental budgets for Fiscal Year 2016, we are again inviting citizens to offer suggestions pertaining to cost savings and operational efficiencies for the City,” said Council President Gregory. “Although we are currently preparing for the upcoming budget at this time, cost savings is something that is a year-round process and all suggestions are appreciated.”
