The municipal council has to make many decisions that significantly shape life in Rastatt. In order to be able to discuss applications and administrative proposals in depth and to relieve the municipal council, there are decision-making committees. These consult in advance of a municipal council meeting, but can also make decisions independently under certain conditions.
Each committee consists of 14 city councilors and the mayor as chairman. The guidelines for this are laid down in the municipal code of the state of Baden-Württemberg.
The parliamentary groups in the Rastatt municipal council have the right to delegate expert residents to the committees. Each committee has eight expert residents. They have the right to speak at the meetings, but may not vote.
