Westerville's Council/Manager Style of Government
Westerville City Council consists of seven at-large members elected to serve four-year terms. Elections are held in odd-numbered years, with four seats filled in one election and three seats filled in the next election. Council members elected in November take office in December. Council then elects officers amongst themselves to serve two-year terms as Council Chair, Council Vice-Chair, Mayor and Vice-Mayor.
The City Manager manages the day-to-day Westerville's operations and reports to City Council. The Clerk of Council and Law Director also report to City Council, but all other city staff ultimately report to the City Manager.
Westerville's phenomenal residential and corporate growth has been comfortably balanced within this form of government. Boards and Commissions, made up of resident volunteers, ensure that all Westerville activities are grounded in our historic legacies and the quality of life business and residential partners seek when moving here. Find out how you can participate on one of these citizen boards under the Boards and Commissions section.
