The Town of Bell operates under the Council-Manager form of government. The Town Council is elected by the voters and in turn, the Council appoints a professionally trained individual as its Town Manager. It is the responsibility of the Town Manager to handle day to day operation of city business. The Town Council makes policy decisions, and votes on all legislative or quasi-judicial matters required or enabled by state or federal law.
All of the seats on the Council are at-large seats which means all commissioners represent the city at large and not any particular district. This allows residents to address particular issues with any commissioner.
Legal Questions should be directed to our Town Attorney David M. Lang, please contact him at (352) 463-7800.
