The City is governed by a Mayor and eight member City Council, elected for staggered four year terms, with the City Manager serving as Chief Executive Officer under the City’s Charter. Winchester city government provides a wide range of services to a growing regional community and is widely recognized for its efforts to provide a high quality of life, strong school system and a diverse economy and workforce. The City operates with an approved FY 2012 operating budget of $140 million.
