Muhlenberg County is run by a judge-executive and five-magistrate Fiscal Court that sets budgets for county offices, enacts ordinances and sets property and occupational taxes.
The Fiscal Court meets at 3 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday each month in the first-floor meeting room in the Muhlenberg County Courthouse in Greenville.
Voters will be electing their party’s nominee in the partisan race for Muhlenberg County judge-executive in the May 18 primary. The judge-executive is the top elected official for county government, and serves a four-year term.
