The City of Dallas (the “City”) is a political subdivision and municipal corporation operating as a home-rule city under the laws of the Ste of Texas. The City was incorporated in 1856 and first adopted its Home Rule Charter in 1907.
The City operates under the council-manager form of government where the Mayor is elected at-large for a four-year term and fourteen single-district City Council members are each elected for two-year terms. The City Council formulates the operating policy for the City while the City Manager is the chief administrative officer.
The City provides a full range of municipal services established by statute or charter, including police and fire, infrastructure, culture and recreation, libraries, planning and zoning, and general administration. Additionally, Dallas Water Utilities, Dallas Love Field Airport, Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas, Sanitation Services, and several other enterprise and internal service fund activities are part of the City’s legal entity.
Dallas is the ninth-largest city in the nation and the largest local economy in the nation’s fourth-largest metropolitan statistical area. At approximately 385 square miles, Dallas sprawls across five counties (Dallas, Collin, Denton, Rockwall and Kaufman).
The City of Dallas received recognition from FEMA Region 6 for its Class 4 Rating in the Community Rating System (CRS) Program. FEMA’s Region 6 Mitigation Division Director, Mr. Gary Zimmerer presented the award to Mr. Steve Parker, the City of Dallas Floodplain Administrator.
The rating recognizes the City’s floodplain management practices.
Dallas is the first community to reach a Level 4 in Texas and is the highest ranked community in Texas. Per the preliminary list of communities published by FEMA in April of 2022, there are only six other communities in the United States with a Class 4 ranking in the CRS program.
The City has participated in the Community Rating System Program since 1991; over 1,500 communities participate nationwide. The CRS program is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management practices that exceed the minimum requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
The Class 4 Rating allows Dallas residents residing within the Special Flood Hazard Area (100-year floodplain) to receive a 30% discount on their flood insurance costs, and residents who live outside of the Special Flood Hazard Area (100-year floodplain) to receive a 10% discount on their flood insurance costs.
In CRS communities, the rating and flood insurance premium discounts reflect the reduced flood risk from the community’s efforts that address the three goals of the program:
Dallas residents are encouraged to consider purchasing flood insurance for their properties at a discounted rate. To learn more, visit National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The City of Dallas is changing its domain in 2022 from DallasCityHall.com to Dallas.gov.
Here are a few fundamental reasons why.
“There are several reasons why the switch from .com to .gov is necessary. The biggest reason is that .gov is controlled by federal government domains that are more secure and harder to spoof.,” says Chief Information Security Officer, Brian Gardner Ph.D.
DallasCityHall.com emails will forward to Dallas.gov addresses until the migration is complete. DallasCityNews.net will eventually forward to Dallas.gov.
