Irving operates under a council-manager form of government where council sets city policy and the city manager is responsible for organizational operations. Residents elect a mayor and eight council members to serve the city. All council members are elected for three-year terms. Elected officials are under a mixed system of single-member districts and at-large seats.
Following is a complete list of the City Council:
- Mayor − Beth Van Duyne (at-large)
- Place 1 − John C. Danish
- Place 2 − Allan E. Meagher (at-large)
- Place 3 − Dennis Webb
- Place 4 − Joe Putnam
- Place 5 − Oscar Ward
- Place 6 − Brad M. LaMorgese

Council meetings are held at least once a month on Thursdays, beginning at 7 p.m. Meeting dates are posted on the city’s website at cityofirving.org/city-secretary/agendas-minutes/council-meetings.asp.
