What We Do
The Mayor is responsible for assuring the implementation of all City Council policy decisions, efficiently directing the city’s operations, and creating an organizational culture that results in the delivery of excellent municipal services to residents of the City of Lancaster.
The Office of the Mayor is the primary source of direction and coordination for all City operations and services. Department Directors including Community Planning & Economic Development, Administrative Services, and Public Works report directly to the Mayor. In addition, as Director of Public Safety, the Mayor serves as the top elected official presiding over the Bureaus of Police and Fire.
Three employees staff the Office of the Mayor: The Senior Staff Assistant provides direct administrative support to the Mayor; the Communications Manager manages the City website and social media channels; and the Chief of Staff advances the Mayor’s policy agenda and directives and oversees the City’s communications efforts.
