City Manager Search

The City of Columbia invites community members to provide their input on the values and attributes that are desired in Columbia’s next city manager. The public involvement process is important so all voices are heard. Every Columbia resident is welcome to share their thoughts on personal and professional characteristics they’d like to see in the next leader of our community.

The consultants hired by the Columbia City Council to conduct the search, CPS HR Consulting, will facilitate two meetings for the community to provide feedback:

Wednesday, Feb. 6
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Activity & Recreation Center (ARC), Rooms B and C
1701 West Ash Street

Thursday, Feb. 7
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
City Hall, City Council Chambers
701 E. Broadway
*This meeting will be broadcast/live streamed and recorded.

Additionally, there will be an online survey posted on CoMo.gov to gather input from those unable to attend the community meetings. The survey will be posted in the days following the meetings and will be open for three weeks.
