Town Administrator

Mission Statement
The Town Administrator’s Office is committed to providing quality and innovative service in a supportive and creative environment. We will work cooperatively with the citizens of Natick and all municipal employees in setting the direction and accomplishing goals for town government.

Description
The Town Administrator is appointed by the Board of Selectmen to oversee the daily operations of the town, advise and administer the policies and procedures of the Board of Selectmen and enforce town bylaws and actions passed by Town Meeting. The Town Administrator’s authority and responsibilities are established in the Town Charter and are defined in Section 4 of the Town Charter.

The Town Administrator submits to the Board of Selectmen a proposed annual budget that includes revenue and expenditure projections for the upcoming fiscal year. The Town Administrator works with the Senior Management Team to coordinate the development of the budget. The budget document is presented to the Board of Selectmen, reviewed by Finance Committee and ultimately to Town Meeting for action.

The Town Administrator is responsible for the management of all town departments (excluding the School Department), all town funds, for providing support to the volunteer committee system, working with other levels of government, and managing special projects for the Board of Selectmen.
