The Town Council has contracted with Developmental Associates to lead the search process for a new Town Manager. Community participation is welcomed throughout the search process.

 

After 45 years in local government service including 12 at Chapel Hill, current Town Manager Roger L. Stancil announced last November his plans to retire. He will continue to serve as town manager and assist with the leadership transition when a candidate is selected by the Town Council.

This webpage will be updated throughout the search process.

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.
