The Village of Marathon City has an elected non-partisan Board of seven members: one president and six trustees. In Wisconsin’s Village form of government, officials are elected “at large” which means any qualified elector of the municipality may run for any seat. Nomination papers for those seats are circulated beginning December 1st of any given year and are due by the 1st Tuesday in January of the following year in the office of the village clerk. A minimum of 20 signatures must be collected in order to be on the spring ballot.

In odd years, the President and three trustees are up for election. In even years, the other three trustees are up for election. Terms for all elected Village officials two years in length.

Most administrative functions of the Village are performed by an appointed Administrator / Clerk /Treasurer. The Administrator is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the village.
