City Administration

The City Administrator, appointed by the City Council, is responsible for the implementation of policies and decisions made by the City Council. The City Administrator works to prepare a budget for the Council's consideration, serves as the Council's chief adviser, and is responsible for all City personnel.


The City Administrator makes recommendations to the City Council regarding:

  • Capital Improvements
  • Economic Development
  • Municipal Financing
  • Planning and Growth
  • Services and Programs


The Administration Department staff serves as the initial point of contact for most city services. These services include:

  • Accounts Payable

The city clerk is the heart of the organization providing direct day-to-day oversight of these functions in addition to handling most human resources related matters, financial accounting, and annual audit requirements.
