The District Manager's first responsibility is the operation of the District Office and the delivery of City Services to the constituents. Once a project is approved by the Board or the Board sets a policy, the D.M. goes about implementing that policy. The D.M. works under the supervision of the Chairperson.

This is a brief overview of the office staff and their responsibilities. The office assignments have been broken down this way by the District Manager in an attempt to better serve the Board and the Community.

All staff members have many additional assignments delegated by the D.M. that are too numerous to list here. I hope that this assists you in your relationship with us.
