The City Manager’s Office is responsible for directing and coordinating the work plans of all City departments to help meet our City Council Goals. The City Manager is the chief administrative officer of the City and is responsible for informing and advising the City Council regarding services the City provides to the community. The City Manager also oversees the administration of all City departments and appoints the department directors.
