City Manager

The City of Shawnee operates under a Council-Manager form of government, whereby the City Manager serves as the Chief Executive Officer. The City Manager is appointed by the City Commission and is selected on the basis of executive and administrative qualifications.

As the Chief Executive Officer of the City, the City Manager executes policies and procedures, oversees all day-to-day City operations, fosters sound financial management practices and ensures financial stability, develops programs and measures to promote operational efficiency and meet emerging needs, facilitates strategic planning for future growth and development, and maintains the City’s overall commitment to promote confidence in City government through citizen involvement and customer service excellence.

In collaboration with the City’s Management Team, which consists of Department Heads and Directors, the City Manager's Office provides centralized direction and leadership for the effective administration and efficient operation of all municipal services for the City of Shawnee.

The City Manager keeps the City Commission informed of the ongoing condition of the City and provides timely reports and recommendations. In addition, the City Manager takes part in the discussion of matters coming before the City Commission but acts in a non-voting, advisory capacity.

The City Manager's Office is located in City Hall.  Please call (405) 878-1601 for assistance.
