The City Council of Kansas City, Missouri, is the legislative body of the City of Kansas City, Missouri. Its offices are on the 24th floor of Kansas City City Hall and its legislative chambers are on the 26th floor. Its members represent the population of the more than 450,000 citizens of Kansas City, which is the largest city in Missouri. Kansas City is divided into 6 districts, based on population. Each district is assigned one council member, who is elected every four years by the members of that district.
