Two City Council seats are up for election on May 5, 2018.  Applications are now being accepted from potential candidates in District 2 and District 3. The deadline for candidates to register is 5 p.m. on Friday, February 16, 2018. Those who want to register as a candidate must be age 18 or older and have resided in the specific district where they seek to be a candidate for at least six months. In addition, all candidates must have lived in Texas for at least 12 months to become a candidate.

City Council terms are for a three-year period. The Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem positions are voted on each year by the sitting Council members, and the positions held for one year. City Council members are paid $25 per month, checks received twice per year.

Candidate packets are available online or can be picked up at City Hall from the City Clerk's office at 400 Porter St. Please contact Susan Brock with any questions at 512-352-1214.
