Mont Belvieu voters will vote on a new structure for the city’s government in November, as council is asking them to approve becoming a “home rule” city with a city council-city manager form of government.

In the 2012, Mont Belvieu passed the 5,000-population mark. That means it is large enough to become a home rule rather than a general law city. The different status means the city will have greater powers of annexation and also greater flexibility to manage its own affairs – such as choosing the council-manager form of government.
