Council-Manager Local Government
Big Spring has a Council-Manager form of local government. Policies are set by the Mayor and City Council, who are elected by the citizens. Policies are carried out by the City Manager. The Council decides what is to be done and the City Manager implements it with the assistance of the entire City Staff.
City Council Meetings are open to the public; the Council wants to assure that any citizen may speak in support or against any item on the agenda and encourages the expression of all views before action is taken.

If you are interested in serving on a board, commission or committee, contact the City Manager Office's in person or by calling 432-264-2401, or review information on the Boards and Committees page to print an application out.
