Contact the City Manager
City Managers implement municipal policy, supervising the day-to-day operations of all city departments and staff. They act as liaisons between the residents and the government, meeting with citizens, and local businesses alike. They attend all City Council meetings. They hire personnel, develop fiscal plans, regulate building activities, and maintain a unique understanding of how all city operations function together. Working with other City Managers they tackle cross-jurisdictional issues that effect entire regions of the state.
