Salinas City Manager


The Salinas City Council is recruiting for a City Manager, and has selected the firm of CPS-HR to conduct the search.  As part of the recruitment process the City is seeking input from the community, and has developed an online survey in both English and Spanish.

According to members of the City Council, "It's important for the City Council to know what qualities our residents believe a City Manager must possess to best serve the interests of our city and our community.  What we hear will bear heavily in our selection process."

Appointed by the Salinas City Council, the City Manager is the Chief Executive Officer of the City, overseeing the operations of all the City's departments. The City Manager is responsible for planning, directing, and managing all activities and operations of the City, ensuring that all public services are delivered in the most efficient and effective manner.  The City Manager also implements policy decisions made by the City Council and facilitates the development and implementation of City goals and objectives.

Survey responses should be submitted prior to October 12, 2020.
