City Administrator - Many city councils have found it advantageous to delegate administrative powers and responsibilities to a single appointive officer or employee. In some cases, this official is the  city administrator, whose position has been established by ordinance. The official the city has delegated administrative functions to is responsible for overseeing all the city’s operations on a continuing basis and for reporting to the council on behalf of the various departments. All administrative actions by the council are taken through the official, and any questions the council may have concerning the enforcement of ordinances or performance of city programs are directed to that individual. Centralizing authority and accountability in one appointed officer or employee can simplify the council’s job. The council will be relieved of attending to minor details and will have more time for the important task of setting policy. With proper guidance from the council, a skillful administrator can create an efficient management team capable of running itself.
