The Town Council meets on 2nd Wednesday of the months of June, July, September, November, January and March. Meetings are held at 7.30pm. The most significant decisions, such as setting the Town Council’s precept (local council tax), are taken by Full Council (comprising all 16 Councillors). However, to help run council business more effectively, Felixstowe Town Council has given delegated authority to its Committees to take responsibility for the management of certain key areas of business. Meetings are open to the public who are welcome to attend. 15 minutes is set aside at the start of each meeting for any public questions.
