A little about the City Manager’s Office

The City Manager’s Office, or CMO, is responsible for directing and coordinating City department plans to help meet City Council Goals. Our City Manager is the chief administrative officer of the City. The City Manager is responsible for informing and advising our City Council about services the City provides to Springfield residents. They are also responsible for overseeing the administration of all City departments and appointing department directors.

CMO staff wears a variety of hats helping: support the Mayor and City Council; provide city recorder functions; coordinate city elections; manage recruitment for boards, commissions, and committees; provide public information and media support; and coordinate intergovernmental relations. Staff also manages the City’s economic development program, which includes staffing the Springfield Economic Development Agency. CMO is a bustling office that’s powered by our drive to serve Springfield residents (and lots of coffee).
