Dallas has a Council-Manager form of government. The elected Mayor and nine-member City Council appoint a City Manager to act as the administrative head of the City and its departments.
The City Council is expected each year to attend the 24 regular City Council meetings, council workshop meetings, numerous Council Committee meetings and other special assignments of the Mayor to attend meetings to represent the City with special interest groups.
The City Council also serves as the Urban Renewal District Board of Directors. More information about this body can be found here.
The Mayor and City Council members serve without pay and are reimbursed for only part of their actual expenses while representing the City in attendance at in-town and out-of-town functions.
