One of the first master-planned communities in Texas with neighborhoods, parks, and schools scattered throughout town for a truly family-centered atmosphere, the Town of Trophy Club offers its residents natural beauty, safety, and outstanding regional amenities.
The Town rests in the heart of North Texas, sitting along State Highway 114 between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and the Alliance Airport/Industrial Complex, and is home to nearly 13,700 residents within 4.2 square miles stretched across Tarrant and Denton counties.
The Town of Trophy Club operates under a council-manager form of government with a seven-member Town Council setting vision, crafting policy, and approving the annual budget while an appointed Town Manager oversees daily operations.
The mayor and all six council members are elected at-large for three-year terms and are held to two successive terms at a time.
The new Town Manager will be responsible for the day-to-day management of municipal operations and for carrying out the policy and directions of the Town Council. They oversee seven Town Departments, including Communications and Marketing, Community Development, Finance, Fire, Human Resources, Parks and Recreation, and Police, and are responsible for 75 full-time, 22 part-time, and approximately 70 seasonal staff members. The Town Manager manages the annual operating budget of just under $23.3 million (featuring a tax rate of $0.435 per $100 in valuation).
Under the direction of the Town Council, the Town Manager serves as the organization’s chief executive and administrative officer, ensuring proper administration of the Town’s affairs and departmental activities. They serve as the primary advisor to the Mayor and Council and provide guidance in policy development. The manager regularly reports to the Council about projects, immediate and/or emerging municipal problems, the Town welfare, and functions of departments and offices.
