City Manager


The Ypsilanti city charter establishes a council-manager form of government for the city in which the city council is the legislative or policy making body and appoints a professionally trained executive to serve as City Manager.  The City Manager is the chief administrative officer of the city government and is responsible for the administration of all city affairs as determined by the charter.  The City Manager appoints and removes all department heads and employees of the city, except the City Clerk, prepares and administers the annual city budget and capital improvement plan, provides for the enforcement of all laws of the city, and advises the city council on policy matters.
