What is a Town Manager?
Chapel Hill has a council-manager form of government. The nine Town Council members, including the mayor, are directly elected by citizens. The Town Council appoints the town manager. Each has a different set of responsibilities. The Town Council sets policies; the town manager and his/her staff carry them out. As a professional administrator, the town manager coordinates all day-to-day operations and administration of about 700 employees and an annual budget of about $100 million.
More about the Town Manager Search Process
The Town Council has contracted with Developmental Associates to lead the search process. The first step is to define the competencies sought in the next town manager and design the selection process. Public input will be considered by the Council when defining these competencies. Dr. Stephen Straus of Developmental Associates will gather all public input for consideration by the Town Council.
