About a City Manager

The City of Milford is governed under the Council-Manager form of government. Under this system of local government, the elected officials are the community leaders and policy makers who establish a vision for Milford and who hire a City Manager to carry out policy and ensure that all residents are being equitably served. The City Manager coordinates the work of department heads and other employees, who help ensure the smooth and efficient delivery of services. By building public/private partnerships, intergovernmental agreements, and other collaborative relationships, the City Manager works to use all of the community’s resources to solve current problems and provide municipal services to residents.

The City Manager’s primary responsibility is to keep Milford running smoothly. To do so, the City Manager works with a range of skilled individuals involved in finance, human resources, public safety, public works, parks and recreation, utilities, planning and economic development. You can count on this team to make your community a great place to live, work and play! In short, your professional local government managers help to make Milford a place we are proud to call home!
