The City of Moore is governed by a council-manager form of government.
The City Council consists of Mayor, who is elected at-large, and six council members, who are elected from three wards (districts) of the City. The Mayor is head of the city government for all ceremonial purposes, and should the need arise, is the government head for purposes of military law. He has no regular administrative duties other than in signing written obligations of the City as the Council may require.
Council Members also make up the Public Works Authority, Risk Management Board and Economic Development Authority.
Except as otherwise noted in the City Charter, all powers of the City are vested in the City Council. Among other things, the Council has power:
- To appoint and remove the City Manager;
- By ordinance to enact municipal legislation;
- To raise revenue and make appropriations, and to regulate bond elections, the issuance of bonds, sinking funds, refunding indebtedness, salaries and wages, and all other fiscal affairs of the city;
- To inquire into the conduct of any office, department, or agency of the city government, and investigate municipal affairs;
- To appoint, elect, or remove members of the Personnel Board, Planning Commission, Board of Adjustment, and other quasi-legislative, quasi-judicial, or advisory officers and authorities;
- To grant pardons for violations of the charter and ordinances, including the remission of fines and costs;
- To regulate elections, the initiative and referendum, and recall;
- To regulate the organization, powers, duties, and functions of the municipal court;
- To create, change, and abolish all offices, departments, and agencies of the city government other than those created by the City Charter, and to assign additional powers, duties, and functions to those created by the Charter.
The City of Moore is divided into three wards for purposes of City Council representation. The wards are redistricted ("redrawn") every ten years after the Federal census, with the intent to provide as equal representation by population as possible.

Glenn Lewis, Mayor
Glenn Lewis has served as Moore’s nonpartisan mayor since 1994. Over the years, Lewis has watched the city’s budget grow from $18 million to $150 million. Its population has skyrocketed and the city has also experienced a wave of new construction for homes and businesses. While there have been many successes, there’s also been heartbreak. Moore has been hit by four tornadoes since 1999, all with Lewis at the helm. Each time, he’s responded, mourned and helped his city come back stronger. In July 2013, he was named “Mayor of the Month” by the City Mayors Foundation for his leadership after the May 20th tornado. Lewis is a long-time businessman who owns Lewis Jewelers in Moore. He and his wife Pam have lived in Moore since 1962.
