The City of Moraine is seeking a City Manager who wants to be part of the community and ensure the City’s continued growth in both the business and residential sectors while preserving the community’s close-knit charm and character. The next City Manager will play a strong role in economic development, oversee major capital reinvestment, and work with a developer on new single-family housing. The City Manager will have the opportunity to not only serve a vibrant and diverse community, but also manage the day-to-day operations of an effective organization. The City has a history of good government with stability in the City Manager position and strong leadership from its elected officials. The City Manager is retiring after serving the City for more than 43 years.

The City is fiscally sound and business-friendly with room for future development and has one of the largest automotive glass manufacturers in the U.S. headquartered there. Moraine prides itself in providing outstanding services to its residents with low taxes, including no fees for refuse collection and no assessments or levies. The organization has a stable, committed, and responsive workforce with low employee turnover. The City weathered the recession through strong collaboration between the elected and appointed officials and has come out financially strong. City officials are active in regional organizations, providing leadership and working closely with other governments in the region.

Appointed by the City Council, the City Manager serves as the chief executive officer, who implements council policies, provides organizational leadership for department directors and employees, and oversees the day-to-day business of government operations. Those operations include the departments of Police, Fire, Clerk of Courts, Community Development, Building Maintenance, Information Technology, and the divisions of Streets, Parks and Recreation, and Volunteer Programs. The Law Director, Finance Director, and City Clerk report directly to the Council but work closely with the City Manager. The City Manager serves as the City’s Human Resources Director.

Requirements for this position are a bachelor’s degree and at least five (5) years of progressively responsible experience in a local government, including supervision and/or executive level management (manager/administrator, assistant manager/administrator, or key department director). Preferred qualifications include a master’s degree in public administration or a closely related field and strong human resources/employee relations, budget management, labor relations, economic development, and regional and intergovernmental expertise.

Residency within the City is preferred, but not required. However, it is expected that the City Manager live within a reasonable driving distance from Moraine.

The expected hiring range is $120,000-$150,000, depending on qualifications, with an excellent benefit package.
