The Town Manager is committed to being responsive, ethical, and transparent while providing quality, innovative and effective service to all town departments, federal and state agencies, the business community, and our residents at large. We foster and promote effective working relationships with all town employees, boards, committees, and commissions. We are committed to annually presenting a fiscally responsible operating budget that accomplishes the goals of the Gate City Town Council.
Town Manager Responsibilities
The Town Manager is appointed by the Town Council as the Chief Executive Officer to oversee the daily operations of the Town, advice and administer the policies and procedures of the Town Council, and enforce Town ordinances and actions passed by Town Council. The Town Manager works with the Treasurer and Finance Committee to coordinate the budget development process. The budget is prepared, presented, and reviewed by the Finance Committee and ultimately submitted to the Town Council for a public hearing and adoption. Although the Town Manager is responsible to the Town Council, the proposals and recommendations submitted to the governing body for consideration must reflect the needs of the community and be in the best interests of the municipality.
