Form of Government

The City of Nacogdoches has a council / manager form of government. Under this form of government, the elected City Council member sets the policies for the operation of the municipal government. The administrative responsibility of the city rests with the city manager, who is appointed by the City Council. The City Council consists of five members: a mayor and four council members.

Hybrid City Council Meeting: 

Beginning November 4, 2020 at 5:30 pm, our City Council will be hosting public meetings in a hybrid format. This will allow for limited in-person seating and will still include the option for residents to participate from home.

Currently, in order to comment on an agenda item or speak in the open forum portion of the meeting, the public can request a call from city staff while watching the meeting virtually.

The size and ability to socially distance in the meeting facility limits the number of people allowed in the room at one time, so the public is still encouraged to watch virtually on Channel 21 and can schedule a time to speak by calling the City Secretary, Jan Vinson at 559-2506. Time and speaker limits during the open forum will still be observed.
