City Manager’s Office

The City of Waco establishes and administers law through a council-manager form of government.

Under the council-manager form, power is concentrated in the elected council, which hires a professional administrator to implement its policies. The council-manager form of government combines the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of a council with the strong professional experience of an appointed local government administrator.
