WHY WE EXIST
As the Chief Executive Officer of the City organization, City Manager Trey Cocking is responsible for the daily administration of the City's operations, personnel, and affairs. See Trey Cocking's bio here.

HOW WE DO BUSINESS
The City Manager is hired by the Governing Body to serve the community and bring the benefit of his education, training and experience in managing local government organizations, projects and programs.

As city manager, Trey:
  • Serves as the City Commission's chief advisor and carries out the City Commission's policies;
  • Implements and enforces the policies established by the elected officials; and
  • Fulfills a leadership role in the community as a means of advancing the interest of the City.
The City Manager is responsible for all City employees; all City employees ultimately report to the City Manager. Other responsibilities include supervision of all City departments, projects, and programs, and ensuring service delivery to the public.

The City Manager is also ultimately accountable for the City's finances, including presenting an annual budget for City Commission approval.

Commission members and citizens count on the City Manager to provide complete and objective information, pros and cons of alternatives and long-term consequences of decisions and policies.

Similarly, the City Manager relies on City staff to provide professional and well-reasoned information and recommendations, and the highest level of public service possible.
