About the City Manager's Office

City Manager's Office

Appointed by the City Council to serve as the City's chief administrative officer, the City Manager sets goals for and gives administrative direction to all City departments following the policies established by the City Council. 

This office produces and oversees the City Council Goals. The City Manager also compiles department submissions to create the City's Annual Work Program. This Annual Work Program ensures the City's yearly operations align with the Council's goals and the City's adopted Strategic Plan.

The City Manager's Office also promotes and maintains the relationships between the City's elected officials and Burbank's state and federal representatives. To support these efforts and ultimately advocate for legislation that supports the best interests of the community, the City's Legislative Platform is annually reviewed and adopted by the City Council.

By carrying out the policies established by the City Council, the City Manager's office works to maintain and improve the quality of life in Burbank.
