The city manager's office provides leadership for the City government organization. By operationalizing policy as established by the City Council, the administration division ensures that the City's mission statement is the catalyst behind all operational endeavors.
Paramount to the fulfillment of the mission statements is the formulation of each fiscal year's action plan. Through the identification of organizational goals, benchmarks are established that will gauge the level of success attained by the organization in meeting the fiscal year's objectives. The administration division, working in conjunction with the senior executive management team, guides the progress of each of the organizational goals.
The administration division, with the assistance of the Finance Department, oversees the careful allocation of financial resources, to ensure that cost-efficient service delivery is an operational standard.
