City Manager

About Us

The City of Salem operates through the Council-Manager form of government. In this form, the elected officials are policy makers who establish a vision for their City and who hire a professional manager to carry out policy and ensure that all residents are being equitably served. The manager coordinates the work of department heads and other employees, who help ensure the efficient delivery of services. By building public/private partnerships, managers target all of a community's resources to solve current problems.
