City Manager

Form of Government

The council-manager form is the system of local government that combines strong political leadership, representative democracy through elected officials, and professional management. This form establishes a representative government by concentrating all power in the elected Mayor and City Council. The Council hires a professionally trained and educated city manager to oversee the delivery of public services and the daily operation of the City. The Mayor and Council Members serve as the policy-making board for the City's government.
