City of Denton residents, this is your City Government. We welcome your input and volunteer efforts; your local government is built on it.

The City of Denton is governed by the Council-Manager form of government. The mayor and six council members are the legislative body of the City; its members are the community's decision makers. The Council focuses on community goals, major projects, and long-term considerations such as community growth, land use development, capital improvement plans, and strategic planning.

The Council appoints a professional manager to oversee the delivery of public services.
