The Plano City Council is composed of eight members from four administrative districts. Each Councilmember serves a four-year term, extended from three years by the passing of a charter amendment in 2012.[2] All Councilmembers, including the Mayor, are limited to being elected to two four-year terms. All Councilmembers are elected by popular vote of the entire city of Plano. Those running for Places 1 through 4 must reside in the district that corresponds to that place number. Places 5 through 8 do not have residency restrictions. Place 6 is always the mayor.[1]

The Mayor receives a yearly stipend of $18,000, and each Councilmember receives $12,000.
