Wheeling’s Municipal government is in the Council-Manager form.Â A professional Village Manager directs day-to-day operations, and policy-making is the task of an elected Village President and Board of Trustees.Â Residents are welcome to attend and encouraged to take an active role in community affairs, at twice monthly board meetings, and other workshops and special meetings.
The Village of Wheeling enjoys a good financial standing, with good municipal bond ratings as of the date of publication (AA rating: Fitch and Standard and Poor’s).Â Taxes are reasonable, kept that way through prudent fiscal management and a broad tax base, afforded by a large and diverse base of business and industry located in the Village.
