The City Manager is employed by and accountable to the Board of Supervisors and functions under the council-manager form of government.

In the council-manager form of government, the council (Board of Supervisors) is the governing body of the city, elected by the public, and the manager is hired by the council to carry out the policies it establishes.

The Board of Supervisors provides legislative direction while the manager is responsible for day-to-day administrative operations of the city based on the Board’s recommendations. The Mayor and Board, as a collegial body, are responsible for setting policy, approving the budget, and determining the tax rate. The manager serves as the Board’s chief advisor. The City Manager serves at the pleasure of the Board and is responsible for preparing the budget, directing day-to-day operations, and hiring and firing personnel.

The City Manager is responsible for coordinating, compiling, and producing the notices of meetings of the Board of Supervisors in accordance with Nevada’s Open Meeting Law. The Clerk-Recorder, however, is responsible for recording, transcribing, and maintaining records of the meetings of the Board.
