Local Government Organization 

The City of Carrollton is a Home Rule municipality with a council-manager form of government. The City Council is made up of a mayor and seven councilmembers. All members of the Council are elected at-large and serve three-year staggered terms. They are community volunteers who meet in regular meetings twice a month. The role of the Mayor and City Council is to enact local legislation, provide vision for the future of Carrollton, set policy, and hire a City Manager.

The City Council is responsible for establishing City policies, considering City resolutions and ordinances, appointing citizens to various City Boards and Commissions, adopting the City's Comprehensive Plan and annual budget, and approving or rejecting zoning changes.

The City Manager, Erin Rinehart, is the chief executive officer and is responsible to the Council for the proper administration of all affairs of the City as prescribed by the City Charter or required by the Council.
