The City of Taylor has an elected City Council that is comprised of five Council Members, four of whom are elected from single-member districts and one Member elected At-Large (see who represents you on the city District Map). Council members serve a three-year term and each year elect from their number a Mayor and a Mayor Pro Tem.
Taylor is a Home Rule City, which means that the Council can enact legislation, adopt budgets, and determine policies, subject only to limitations imposed by the State Constitution and the City Charter. The City Council is also guided by an Ethics Policy and a Council Relations Policy to ensure their commitment to preserving the integrity of local government.
