City Council

Government Information


The City of Ovilla is a Type A General Law City. Type A General Law cities are usually the larger of General Law cities.  General law cities operate according to specific state statutes prescribing their powers and duties. General Law cities are limited to doing what the state authorizes or permits them to do. If state law does not grant general law cities the express or implied power to initiate a particular action, none may be taken. General Law cities are smaller cities, most of which are less than 5,000 in population. 
 
The governing body consists of the Mayor and five Council Member seats. Each position is elected at-large and represents all citizens.

The City Council meets at 6:00 pm on the second Monday of each month, beginning with a Council Briefing Session, followed by a Regular Council Meeting. Both are open to the public. Special meetings may be called as needed.

City Council meetings are held at the following location:
Council Chamber of the City Hall
