Town Manager Department

The Town of Winter Park operates within the Council-Manager form of government. This system of local government combines the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of a Council, with the managerial experience of an appointed local government manager.


This follows a representative system where the authority is concentrated in the elected council as a whole and the Council hires a professionally trained manager to oversee the delivery of public services.


The Town Manager is the chief executive and administrative officer of the Town and is responsible to the Town Council for the administration and execution of all affairs of the Town.


The Town Manager is responsible for implementation of policy and procedures as directed by the Town Council. The Town Manager's Office, as provided by charter, is responsible for:


  • Coordination of day-to-day operations and supervision of all departments
  • Administration and execution of all Town affairs
  • Hiring of personnel
  • Advising and making recommendations to Town Council
  • Enforcing laws and ordinances of the Town
