Form of Government

 
North Richland Hills operates under a council-manager form of government. The City Council is composed of a mayor and seven council members. The mayor and council members are elected at-large and serve two-year terms. The Mayor and council members in Places 2, 4, and 6 are elected in even-numbered years and council members in Places 1, 3, 5, and 7 elected in odd-numbered years.  The council enacts local legislation, adopts the annual operating budget and sets policy. The city manager is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the city and reports directly to the council.  
 
The City Council also serves as the Crime Control & Prevention District Board, the Sign Review Board and the Landscape Review Board. Council subcommittees include the Naming Board and CIP Committee.
