The City Manager’s Office in municipal government operates much like an executive office in a corporation, with the City Manager as Chief Administrative Officer. Key responsibilities include:
Overseeing the broad requirements of the organization
Providing advice to Council and executing its decisions
Working with the Deputy City Manager and all departments to ensure effective and efficient delivery of City services
