Residents' Question Time

As a resident, you have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed and other matters of the municipality in public meetings of the municipal council.

A residents' question time can be scheduled by a municipal representation within its meeting.

Public meetings are, for example, those of municipal councils or district councils as well as their specialist committees, provided that the rules of procedure stipulate that they take place in public.

Process flow

If a Residents' Question Time is offered, it is usually an item on the agenda. Details and requirements are set out in the respective Rules of Procedure.

Who should I contact?

The residents' questions are addressed to the members of the representation (council or district council) during the residents' question time.


As a questioner, you must be a resident of the municipality, i.e. you must have your domicile or permanent residence in the municipality. The questions must concern matters of the municipality.

Which documents are required?

If necessary, the meeting body will verify your identity as the questioner. That's why it makes sense to have proof of identity with you.

What are the fees?

Fee: free of charge
