Pantego is a town in Tarrant County, Texas, United States. The population was 2,394 at the 2010 census. It is entirely surrounded by the cities of Arlington and Dalworthington Gardens. It is in the middle of the Dallas–Fort Worth-Arlington metroplex, a metropolitan area spanning several counties.
Pantego incorporated in 1952 as a village, but changed to a Type A General Law city in 1967. General Law cities are smaller cities, most of which are less than 5,000 in population. All General Law cities operate according to specific state statutes prescribing their powers and duties. General Law cities are limited to doing what the state authorizes or permits them to do. If state law does not grant General Law cities the express or implied power to initiate a particular action, none may be taken. The governing body of a municipality operating as a Type A General Law municipality is known as the “City Council” and if the city has not been divided into wards, the governing body always consists of a Mayor and five Council members.
