Mayor & City Council
Plano is governed by the Council-Manager form of government where the Council sets City policy and the Manager is responsible for City operations. The City Council consists of the Mayor and seven City Council members, all of whom are elected at-large.
There are eight Council places (each identified with numbers running one through eight) in the City of Plano which includes the place of Mayor (Place six). All Council members run and serve at large which means that all Council Members represent the entire City and likewise the entire City may vote for all eight places as they come due regardless of where they may reside in the City. Each Council Member serves a four-year term and all members are limited to no more than two consecutive terms.
Of the eight Council Places, candidates running and serving in places one, two, three, and four must reside in that district. View the map identifying the districts. Residing in the first four districts is the only distinction separating Council Members in places one through four from places five through eight.The Office of the Mayor and City Council works diligently to guide city staff to achieve Plano's mission as a regional and national municipal leader, providing outstanding services and facilities through cooperative efforts that engage our citizens and that contribute to the quality of life in our community.
