City Manager



The mission of the City Manager's Office is to partner with City Council in achieving the goals and objectives set forth for the City of Troy. To this end, a key factor is the identification of priorities and establishment of management procedures that develop and effectively utilize City resources.

As the City's chief administrative officer, the City Manager is responsible for directing the administration of the City government. The Manager's responsibilities include organizational management; fiscal management; program development; and program evaluation.

The City Manager must be aware of new methods as they apply to City services. New developments in the area of public policy are researched and analyzed to organize a process of program planning in anticipation of future needs.
