The mayor and the aldermen make up the Municipal Executive (college van burgemeester en wethouders).

After the municipal elections, which are held every four years, the Municipal Council (Gemeenteraad) appoints the aldermen (wethouders) based on the number of representatives elected from each party. Together with the mayor (burgemeester), the aldermen make up the Municipal Executive (College van B&W). The Municipal Executive is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the city, on the basis of a joint four-year policy programme.

Each alderman, or deputy mayor, is responsible for a number of particular policy areas and city districts. The statute gives the Mayor responsibility for public order and safety.
