Webster Groves is a Charter city with a Council-Manager form of government.

In 1954, the residents of Webster Groves chose to organize as a "Charter City" with a Council-Manager structure. This means that there is a separation between the policymaking and administrative functions of government. The City Council formulates municipal policy and appoints the City Manager to manage the operations of the City. Usually, Councilmembers deal with the various city departments only through the City Manager. S/he is responsible for developing the annual budget, recommending options and solutions to issues identified by the City Council, implementing projects approved by the Council, and planning, developing and monitoring progress to meet current and future fiscal and operational needs of the City.
