The City of Morgantown operates under a City Manager/Council form of government. The city charter was adopted in 1977.

Council members serve terms of two years, with members being voted into the council for each of 7 wards. All 7 council members are up for election every two years. Potential council members must be sponsored by 75 registered voters within the city to be placed on the election ballot.

Once on the ballot, council members are elected by votes from all wards of the city. The position of Mayor is selected in July by council members every two years. The City Council provides policy guidelines to the City Manager for management of the city.

To contact Council at City Hall call the City Clerks Office at (304) 284-7439. Council Meetings are now broadcast live on channel 15 on the first, third, and last Tuesdays of the Month, and replayed the following two days.
