Since 1916, the City of Westerville has operated under a Council-Manager style of government establishing City Council as the legislative and executive body and provides for professional management through an appointed administrator.
Westerville was the first village and second municipality in Ohio to adopt this form of city government. Day-to-day operations are the responsibility of the City Manager, who serves as the chief executive of the City. Westerville government functions are carried out by the City Manager and ten appointed department or division directors, including Administrative Services, Electric, Finance, Fire, Information Services, Parks & Recreation, Planning & Development, Police, Public Service and Water. These directors provide leadership and guidance to their respective staffs, update City Council on various aspects of city business, coordinate respective budgets and oversee long-range planning efforts.
