The City is represented by 44 councillors. These are elected in a mixture of single and multi-member wards (31 single member wards, five two member wards and one three member ward).
Each ward councillor can be contacted by people living in the relevant ward to discuss issues relating to them. The councillor can then take up issues directly with council departments on their behalf. Additionally, councillors attend residents' meetings, housing association meetings and many other organised gatherings in their wards.
They also represent the council on outside bodies such as the Fire Authority, Stoke on Trent Regeneration Ltd., Mitchell Arts Centre Board of Trustees, and many more.

The PCC decides how much council tax people will pay towards community safety services and policing and is personally accountable for all the public money spent. They don’t run the police force on a daily basis but commission policing services from the Chief Constable who is directly employed by the PCC and answerable to them.
