Message From City Manager
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. I hope you find it interesting and informative.
The City Manager is responsible for the administration of City Government and implementation of policies and programs as directed by the City Council. Our team is committed to providing results-oriented, practical, and creative approaches when implementing the Council's initiatives and vision for the City of Sioux City.
The Council-Manager form of local government combines the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of a council or other governing body with the strong public managerial experience of an appointed local government manager. Approximately 60% of US cities with populations of 25,000 or more have adopted the council-manager form of city government.
The Mayor and Council Members are the City's policy makers, elected at-large, through a popular vote. As the City Council serves at the pleasure of the citizens of Sioux City, the City Manager serves at the pleasure of the City Council.
We encourage you to contact us any time with your questions and concerns.
- Robert Padmore, City of Sioux City, City Manager
