Norristown is governed by a Municipal Council which consists of seven officials elected by the residents of the Municipality. There are four councilmembers who are elected by and represent specific districts within the Municipality (see map). There are also three at-large councilmembers who the Council directs the activities of the Municipality through the appointed Municipal Administrator, who in turn supervises all departments. 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. The Council meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month.
