Meet Frisco’s City Council

The Frisco City Council in made up of 6 publicly elected representatives and a mayor.  The role of the mayor is to preside over council meetings and vote only in the case of a tie among the 6 councilpersons.  All positions are at-large, meaning each member of the council represents the entire city, not a designated region.  Additionally, the City of Frisco has adopted the council-manager form of government.  This means that a city manager is employed to carry out the day-to-day operation of the city with all departments reporting to this position.  The City Council simply sets policies, budgets, and direction.  The city manager is responsible for administering those policies.  This is a popular form of government within the state of Texas.

 

City Council meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center.  The public portion of the meeting typically begins between 6:30pm and 7:00pm after the City Council returns from closed session.  All public meetings are required to posted 72-hours in advance.  A list of upcoming and past meetings, along with agendas and minutes can be found on the City of Frisco website.  All City Council meetings are streamed live online.  While the meeting is in session, the link will be available on the website next to the agenda and minutes links.
