Council-Manager Form of Government

The City of Plymouth is a municipality that operates as a council-manager form of government.  Here, the Plymouth City Commission is the council.

The mayor and Plymouth City Commission members are the elected representatives of the citizens.  It is their job to set goals and enact policies considering the needs of the public they serve. 

Some municipalities use the mayor-council form of government, in which the mayor is the administrator.
