The municipal council is the political representation of the citizens of Schramberg. As such, its members have been directly elected by the residents and represent their interests. Schramberg's municipal council consists of 27 councilors organized into five political groups, chaired by Mayor Dorothee Eisenlohr.
During residents' question time at the beginning of each public municipal council meeting, visitors can ask questions about local politics. These are answered either directly or, if possible, within a few days by the administration.
