Westlock County council is divided into seven electoral areas called divisions. Each division has a Councillor that has been elected by citizens within the divisional boundaries. The Reeve and Deputy Reeve are elected from within Council on an annual basis. Each councillor serves a four-year term.
Governed by the Provincial Municipal Government Act, the Council passes bylaws that provide for, develop and maintain a viable municipality. The primary function of the County Chief Administrative Officer is to act as the principal liaison between Council and Administration and to oversee the staff.
