A pinnacle career opportunity awaits a talented and successful City Manager in the City of Lawrence, Kansas. Lawrence is a city with a highly developed professional staff, strong infrastructure, excellent city services, a highly educated population, and abundant economic development opportunities. With over 100,000 residents and the home of two universities, Lawrence has many amenities of larger cities without forfeiting the Midwestern, small-town charm that its residents hold so dearly. The City of Lawrence employs 860 FTE positions and provides a full slate of municipal services across nine departments. The FY 2019 budget was recently adopted at $207 million and is supported by steady increases in both assessed valuations and sales tax revenues. The City Manager is appointed by the City Commission and leads very professional and developed staff, including two Assistant City Managers. Education equivalent to a master’s degree from an accredited college or university with major course work in public administration, business administration, or a related field is required along with ten years of increasingly responsible experience in government or business management, including five years of administrative and supervisory responsibility. The successful candidate will receive a highly competitive salary with an excellent executive benefit package that considers the candidate’s salary history and track record of career success.
