Angus has 28 councillors who are responsible for deciding which policies the council should pursue, and ensure that they are carried out in the most efficient and effective way.
Local councillors are elected by the community, and represent public interest as well as individuals living within their ward.
Councillors are also responsible for helping with any difficulties constituents may have, which the council could help solve.
You can contact your local councillor by phone and email.
Your councillor will discuss any concerns or problems relating to council services and listen to your views on issues that you feel are important.
Councillors are not paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances. By law, all members of the council are required to complete a Declaration of Interest form.
The council employs officers who are responsible for its day to day management.
