Commission - Manager Form of Government

city hall

In a city commission government, voters elect a small commission, on an at-large basis.

These commissioners as a group are responsible for taxation, appropriations, ordinances, and other general functions. Individual commissioners are also assigned executive responsibility for specific aspects of municipal affairs, such as public works, finance, or public safety.

The City Manager is the chief executive director for the day-to-day affairs of the city.

The Mayor's principal role is to chair the Commission meetings.
