Candidate Eligibility Requirements
Eligibility for City Council candidacy during an election is governed by Title 9, Sec 141.001 of the State of Texas Election Code and by Section 3.03 of the City of Watauga Home Rule Charter. In any case in which the requirements are more restrictive in the City's Home Rule Charter as opposed to the State Election Code, the requirements in the City of Watauga Home Rule Charter prevail.
Form of Government
Watauga is led by a Mayor/Council/City Manager form of government, with the Mayor and all seven (7) City Council seats elected at-large for a two year term. Direct citizen input to City government takes the form of several volunteer boards, commissions and committees, which advise the City Council on a variety of issues such as crime prevention, parks, recreation and community services, etc.
Watauga City Council Regular Meetings are approved a year in advance by City Council and are generally scheduled on the second and fourth Monday of each month. When approving the Regular Meeting schedule, City Council takes into consideration various factors such as holidays and Charter provisions. Special City Council Meetings are called as needed and notice of all meetings can be found on the required bulletin boards at City Hall. Regular City Council Meetings and Special City Council Meetings are held at City Hall in the City Council Chamber located at 7105 Whitley Road, Watauga, Texas 76148.
