City Manager

The ongoing mission of the City Manager’s office is to position the City of Bellflower as a progressive and economically viable local government entity in the 21st Century. The City Manager’s office is responsible for the direction of the City’s staff, presenting a balanced bi-annual budget to the City Council, and promoting good government practices as a day-to-day priority.

The City Manager works under the broad policy guidance of the City Council and shapes current City policies from that direction. The City Manager supervises all municipal employees either directly or through subordinate supervisors, except the City Clerk and the City Attorney who report directly to the City Council. The City Manager's duties and powers are assigned from Chapter 2, Section 3, and Subsection 2 of the Bellflower Municipal Code.

The City Manager’s office also serves as the primary point of contact for resident and business interests pertaining in the City, as well as for media inquiries.
