Alderpersons are the individual members of the Common Council. Alderpersons are generally elected from aldermanic districts. The Common Council is made up of “alderpersons” and the Mayor. In contrast to other city officers, the Wisconsin Statutes does provide a list of duties for alderpersons. Individual alderpersons are not empowered to act on behalf of the city, and can only exercise power when a quorum of the council is present.
