Village Manager

Council-Manager Government

The council-manager form of government combines the strong political leadership of an elected council with the strong managerial experience of an appoint village or city manager. The council retains all the power and authority to set and pursue policy and policy changes.

This form of government has become the most popular structure of local government within the United States. This style of governing was born out of the progressive reform era at the turn of the 20th century.
