City Council
The Allen City Council consists of the mayor and six councilmembers elected citywide to serve three-year, staggered terms of office. In addition to strategic planning and approving the annual budget, the council sets policy, enacts ordinances establishing municipal law and regulates zoning and development. The council also appoints board and commission members.

Form of Government
Incorporated in 1953, the City of Allen is a home rule city that is governed by the laws of the State of Texas and within the framework of the City Charter, which was approved by voters on January 29, 1979. The city operates under a council-manager form of government, which combines representative democracy through elected officials with a city manager who is professionally trained and educated to manage the day-to-day operations of the city.
