City Manager’s Office

Mission

To build an organization in which control gives way to empowerment, direction gives way to participation and

routine gives way to creativity.

Department Overview

The City Manager's Office is the organizational and administrative epicenter of the city organization. In addition to

coordinating and overseeing the activities of all city departments, the City Manager's Office also provides direct

staff assistance to the City Council and Council committees, leads the financial and budget management

processes for the city and directs the city's efforts to plan for the future.

The City Manager’s Office includes the Office of Emergency Management and Special Events, Office of Economic

Development and Innovation, Office of Internal Audit and Office of Sustainability. Much of the city's interaction with

outside organizations, including federal, state, and local government relations and initiatives, local colleges and

universities, and numerous external nonprofit agencies, is coordinated through the City Manager's Office.

Additional information regarding the City Manager’s Office may be obtained by contacting Louis M. Buonpane,

Chief of Staff, at (919) 996-3070 or via email at
