The City Manager is appointed by the mayor and city commission and serves at their will. The City Manager is responsible for the day-to-day management of the city and insuring all laws and ordinances are enforced equally. The City Manager will recommend policy to the elected commission for their consideration and be responsible for implementing said policy the elected commission adopts. He/she will also hire employees to carry out those policies, enforce all laws and carry out the direction of the elected officials. An annual budget will be prepared and submitted to the elected commission and in the time frame as required by state law. That budget must be a balanced budget with sufficient detail to outline the number of employees, benefits, supplies, and capital outlay.
