The Levelland City Council is made up of the Mayor and four City Council members. The Mayor is elected at large for a three-year term and council members are elected to represent residents in four election districts for two-year terms. The terms are staggered so that two council members are elected each year.
The City of Levelland's home rule Council-Manager form of government was originally adopted in 1948 and implemented in 1949. The City Council is the policy making body of the city government, exercising those powers granted by the City Charter, State law, and the State Constitution.
The City Council appoints the City Manager to handle the day-to-day administration of the City and provides the legislative leadership needed to ensure that citizens are provided with quality public services to further the orderly development of the City and to promote the safety and welfare of its residents.
The City Council normally meets on the first and third Monday of each month.
