What is role of Town Manager?

A Letter to the Editor to the Hendricks County Icon and Republican submitted by Town Manager Tom Klein in October 2019:

Letter to the Editor:

What is the role of the Town or City Manager? We’re like School Superintendents, only for Cities and Towns. The professional superintendent is appointed by the School Board to implement policy and manage the day to day operations of the schools and a Town Council or Mayor appoints a professional town or city manager to implement policy and manage the day to day operations of the Town or City.

Town and city managers are dedicated to the concepts of effective and democratic local government and our goal is to provide local elected officials with facts and advice on matters of policy as a basis for making decisions and setting community goals.

Town and city managers are also dedicated to the highest ideals of honor and integrity in all public and personal relationships.

Hendricks County is fortunate to have nine professional local government managers that help manage Towns in the County.
