WHAT IS THE MANAGER’S FUNCTION?
The manager is hired to serve the council and the community and to bring to the local government the benefits of training and experience in administering local government projects and programs on behalf of the governing body. The manager prepares a budget for the council’s consideration; recruits, hires, and supervises the borough’s staff; serves as the council’s chief adviser; and carries out the council’s policies. Council members and citizens count on the manager to provide complete and objective information, pros and cons of alternatives, and long-term consequences. The manager makes policy recommendations to the council, but the council may or may not adopt them and may modify the recommendations. Manager is bound by council’s action on all subject matters.
