Governing for Growth and Prosperity

Responsiveness to business needs and expansion requirements is reflective of a pro-business, pro-growth community government.

Organized for Flexibility & Effectiveness

Wharton boasts a simple and effective organization that includes a mayor, six-member council, and city manager.
Four council members are elected by district, and two are at-large positions. This mix creates a blend of structure and flexibility that benefits our business community and growing needs within that sector.
