Middleburg is a full-service Town government with 15 full-time Town employees, including a 24/7 police force. The annual Town budget is approximately $5.2 million, which includes the general fund and the utility system operations.

In addition to police, the Town provides water and wastewater utilities, solid waste and recycling collection, planning and zoning, business and economic development services, and other citizen services. The Town is governed by a Mayor and 7 Councilmembers, who also appoint numerous advisory Boards and Committees. The Town Council is focused on strategic planning, innovation, business enhancement, protecting quality of life, and customer service.

This resulted in fiscal policies that have allowed the Town to maintain a strong position during the pandemic, even projecting that the Town will end the current fiscal year with a healthy surplus. While Meals and Lodging Taxes decreased in spring 2020 due to required operational shutdowns, business in much of the Town has returned stronger than pre-pandemic levels, representing the safe and desirable nature of Middleburg as a destination for local and regional travelers.
