Members of the City Council and the Mayor discuss the potential of Liberty Hill becoming a home rule city at a City Council meeting in May.

Now that the City of Liberty Hill can officially claim a population of over 5,000 residents, it is seeking a change from general rule to home rule status.

What does this mean for the City and its residents? City Administrator Paul Brandenburg said when a city reaches a population of at least 5,000, it can be ruled by its own charter, which is essentially like having its own constitution. According to the final results of the 2020 U.S. Census, Liberty Hill’s population is 6,801.
