Job Title: City Manager - Oklahoma City, OK
Category: City Manager or Administrator
Status: Open

Description:
Oklahoma City is a charter city, with a Council-Manager form of government. The Mayor, elected at-large, leads a Council of eight members, each elected by ward.  The Mayor and Council set overall policy and strategic priorities for the organization. The City Manager is appointed by and directly responsible to the Mayor and City Council, and serves as the Chief Administrative Officer of the organization. 

Incorporated in 1890, the City of Oklahoma City serves approximately 650,000 residents in a four (4) county, 621 square mile area. The City is family-friendly with many parks, bicycle and walking trails, and an array of cultural and entertainment options.

The sales tax projects are joined by the other major Better Streets, Safer City initiatives: a 10-year, $967 million bond program (including $536 million for streets, bridges, sidewalks and traffic control), and a permanent ¼ cent sales tax for more police officers, more firefighters and day-to-day operations.
