City Manager

The City operates under a commission-manager form of government in which the City Manager is appointed by the City Commission, and serves as the head of the City's administration. The City Manager is responsible for:
  • Ensuring that council policies are implemented
  • Ensuring the efficient and effective operation of the city
  • Maintaining the day to day administration of the City through the various departments, contracts, and employees
  • Recommending policy alternatives to the commission
  • Submitting the proposed annual budget to the commission


The City Manager's goals are to provide a capable and inspiring leadership for City staff, to make day to day decisions that allow for the most effective use of resources, and to operate in a manner that improves the quality of life for Oakland Park's business and residents.
