A city council (Hebrew: עִירִיָּה‎, Iriya) is the official designation of a city within Israel's system of local government.

City status may be granted by the Interior Minister to a municipality, usually a local council, whose population surpasses 20,000 and whose character is urban, defined as having areas zoned for distinct land use like residential, commercial, and industrial areas.

City mayors and members of the city councils are elected every five years.[1]
