Germantown adopted a council-manager form of government on June 8, 1976. The Municipality is governed by a mayor and six council members, all elected at large. The municipal manager supervises the daily operation of the government. Departments include the Street & Storm Sewer Department, Water & Sanitary Sewer Department, Planning & Zoning, Police, Fire, and Finance.
The Street & Storm Sewer Department has three full-time employees who clean and maintain the streets, plow snow, coordinate the community’s leaf pick-up program and maintain the storm sewers.
The Water & Sanitary Sewer Department also has four full-time employees and their task is to maintain the water system, chlorinate and fluorinate the water, read water meters and assist new developments with installation of new water and sanitary sewer systems.
A number of citizen organizations are established by ordinance with advisory or decision making responsibilities. They include the Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, Park and Recreation Board, Municipality Beautiful Commission, and Swimming Pool Board.
