Casper: Municipal Government
The City of Casper operates under a Council-Manager form of government; in staggered elections, the city's three wards each elect three representatives from the citizenry residing in that ward. All legislative authority resides within the nine-member council. The council in turn appoints a mayor and a vice president from among its own ranks; each of these officials serves for one year. A manager is hired by the city to coordinate municipal business and respond to citizen concerns.
