Form of Government
The City of Morgantown supports a City Manager / Council form of government, adopted in the City Charter in 1977.
In Morgantown, the Mayor and City Council serve part-time and are elected on a non-partisan basis. Under the council-manager form of government, the City Council acts as the legislative body in establishing policy and law and the City Manager handles the day-to-day management of the City organization. The council-manager form has become the most popular form of local government in the United States in communities with a population of 5,000 or greater.
