The City of Leander is a home-rule municipality with a council-manager form of government. The City Council is made up of a mayor and six council members, and each are elected at-large (by all voters) for three-year staggered terms as unpaid elected officials.
Under a council-manager form of government, voters elect the Council which, in turn, hires a City Manager to administer the city’s day-to-day affairs. The Council serves as the legislative body which sets policy, approves the budget, sets the tax rate, and determines the extent and cost of municipal services. The City Manager is responsible for directing the workforce and programs of the city in accordance with ordinances, rules, and regulations adopted by the Council.
Regular meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of each month starting at 6 p.m. in the Council Chamber of Pat Bryson Municipal Hall located at 201 N. Brushy Street, Leander, Texas 78646. For more information about public meetings of the Leander City Council, please contact the City Secretary at 512-528-2743 or email us.
