Municipal Executive

The Municipal Executive (in Dutch 'het college van burgemeester en wethouders',  acronym: B&W) is responsible for day-to-day management of the municipality. It is the task of the Municipal Executive to prepare for and implement decisions taken by the City Council.

The Municipal Executive also has specific authority of its own to take decisions, usually in the executive sphere. For example, it awards municipal permits and subsidies (e.g. building permits, operating permits, stand permits, and collection permits).
