Council-Manager Form of Government:

Glendale operates under a council-manager form of government.  Under this system the City Council determines city policy, passes ordinances, and approves a balanced budget each year.

The City Manager, appointed by the City Council, is responsible for carrying out the council-created policies, and directing the day-to-day operations of city government. The manager reports directly to the city council, and is subject to council performance reviews. The City Manager is responsible for drafting a balanced budget for council review and approval each year.

The Office of the City Manager serves as the focal point for the executive leadership and direction of the organization, working closely with the Mayor and City Council to ensure that city programs and operations reflect policy goals and objectives established by the City Council.

Citizens who would like to observe or participate in the setting of Glendale’s future policies and local decision-making can attend City Council Workshops and Evening Meetings.
