How is the City Manager appointed?
The City Manager is appointed by the City Council for an indefinite period. The Manager is selected by the City Council on the basis of training and ability alone without regard to his/her political preferences. Except for the purpose of inquiries, the City Council addresses administrative services through the City Manager. The appointed Manager carries out policy and ensures that the entire community is being served. If the Manager is not responsive to the Council's wishes, the Council has the authority to terminate the Manager at any time. In that sense, the Manager's responsiveness is tested daily.
