A charter change in 1992 created a dynamic partnership among local government, residents and the business community. Wheeling City Council and City Administration forged a team that is both user- and customer-friendly. A reorganized Department of Economic and Community Development is citizen and project oriented, distinct from a bureaucratic, permit-based operation.

City Council, working with a broad base of residential and business citizens, adopted a new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Wheeling. The Plan focuses on preserving and improving our distinct neighborhoods and driving economic growth throughout the city. City government is proving itself with its commitment to the Plan as well as with its partnerships with the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce, Wheeling National Heritage Area Corporation, Wheeling/Ohio County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Regional Economic Development Partnership, neighborhood organizations, and various committees and commissions.

City Council meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, per the following schedule*:

                       1st Tuesday:  12:00 p.m. meeting

                       3rd Tuesday:  5:30 p.m. meeting

All meetings are open to the public. Those wishing to be heard during a meeting should contact the City Clerk in advance. View the City Council page for additional information.

*Effective September 18, 2012
