Mission Statement

To determine the goals and priorities of the City of Middletown in response to the needs of its citizens.


The City of Middletown’s Common Council is made up of twelve elected individuals who represent the City as a whole. As Middletown’s legislative body, it receives its authority from the City Charter, City Ordinances, and General or Special Acts of the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut.

The Council’s duty is to establish ordinances and resolutions necessary for the conduct of the City’s business. The Common Council also determines the City budget as well as levying taxes and authorizing the issuance of bonds of the City. Most legislation is referred to the appropriate standing committee for review and recommendation prior to final approval.

Get Involved

The Common Council invites citizens to play an active role in municipal government by attending and speaking at all council committee meetings, including the regular meetings.
