The City of Rockland is established as a Council-Manager form of government. The council-manager plan is the system of government that optimizes the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of the council with the professional expertise of the local government manager. Working cooperatively, the City Council and the City Manager strive to identify community needs, provide leadership and direction, make our neighborhoods safe, and create a strong and viable local economy.
The current City Manager is Tom Luttrell (pictured).
It is the mission of the City Manager to provide professional leadership in the administration and execution of policies and objectives established by the City Council. The City Manager is responsible in developing and recommending plans for capital and infrastructure improvements required to maintain the City as a viable, thriving small municipality within the coastal area of the state of Maine. In addition, the City Manager annually prepares a budget that represents the current and future needs of the City. The City Manager also fosters community pride in City government through maintaining effective programs, a top-quality management staff, exceptional customer service, and attention to the needs of the City both in the short and long terms.
The professional management of local government is important for ensuring the highest possible levels of efficiency and productivity. An essential component of city management is working to support effective citizenship. This includes a focus not only on stewardship, service and values but also on place, community and civics. City management works with elected officials to reconcile perspectives and reach real agreement. While this can be difficult it is essential for a city to be well run. In the years to come the most successful communities are going to be those that are really effective at reaching dynamic agreement.
