Norristown is governed by a Municipal Council which consists of seven officials elected by the residents of the Municipality.

Reorganization Meetings

On the first Monday of January in each year, the Municipal Council conducts a reorganization meeting where they elect a President and Vice President of Council.

Council Members

Four of the council members are elected by and represent specific districts within the Municipality (view Municipality Map). There are also three at-large council members who the Council directs the activities of the Municipality through the appointed Municipal Administrator, who in turn supervises all departments.

All council positions are part-time, with each council member serving four-year terms. No council member may be elected for more than two consecutive four-year terms and the balance of one unexpired term of a vacant Council seat. Thereafter, an outgoing council member may not be elected or appointed to serve as council member for at least two years.
