What are the typical daily functions of the City Manager?

No day is typical.  In general, the City Manager meets with City staff to discuss areas of work; with the City Council to discuss policy, performance and issues/observations in the community; with other stakeholders, including residents, community based organizations and businesses, to communicate their needs or impacts from City government.  The City Manager also may be involved in organizations or efforts outside of City government, generally, though, to advance causes that are ultimately important to Batavia and its stakeholders.  The City Manager serves as the point person for communications to and with outside sources, including the media and State and Federal officials.
