Richard M. Thomas - City Manager

In Kentucky, the city manager form of government largely resembles the commission plan, in that the city elects four commissioners and a mayor to serve on the board of commissioners. The board of commissioners appoints a city manager who acts as the chief administrative officer for the city. This individual is a professional who is employed by the city to run the operational affairs of the city on a day-to-day basis. The Office of City Manager is responsible for the effective administration and operation of all municipal services for the City of Richmond. The City Manager also tracks the progress of various projects, monitors city departments, and maintains intergovernmental relationships with the federal, state and other local governments.
