The residents of Milford, using the City Charter process, decided to adopt the form of government known as the “council-manager plan”. City council-manager government is a form of municipal government in which an elected city council is responsible for making policy, passing ordinances, voting appropriations, and having overall supervisory authority in the city government. In the city council-manager government model, the city council hires a city manager who is responsible for supervising government operations and implementing the policies adopted by the council.
In addition to those functions, the staff of the City Manager’s office also manages the economic development, planning and zoning, and property maintenance enforcement operations for the City.
The staff of the City Manager’s office is committed to good, open government and welcomes feedback from and conversations with all residents.
