City Manager

Dear University City Resident,

The City of University City uses the Council-Manager form of government, under which elected City Council members hire the City Manager to carry out the following responsibilities:

  • Ensure that the municipal code and policies approved by elected officials are implemented and equitably enforced throughout the city.
  • Prepare the annual budget, submit it to elected officials for review and approval and implement it once approved.
  • Supervise department heads and other city employees.
  • Submit policy proposals to elected officials and provides them with facts and advice on matters of policy as a basis for making decisions.
  • Manage the day-to-day operations of the city.
I am a member of the International City/County Managers Association. This video describes my leadership philosophy:
