City Manager's Responsibilities
As the city's chief administrative officer, the city manager is responsible to the City Council, which includes the mayor, for all affairs placed in his charge by the City Council, the City Charter, or bylaws.
As provided by Charter, the city manager directs and supervises the departments, offices, and agencies of the city government, seeing that the goals and objectives of the City Council are accomplished and the policies and directives are carried out.
