The administration of the City of Black Diamond follows the lead of the Council. While the role of the
Council is to set the policies and thus the direction for the City, the administration is responsible for
implementing Council-approved policies. Administration covers the day-today management of operations.
In essence, the Council "steers" and the executive office and the administration "rows."
The current administration consists of the City Administrator, a City Clerk/HR Manager, a
Deputy City Clerk, one Administrative Assistant, and three personnel in the Finance Department.
All departments report to the Mayor. The Mayor delegates responsibilities to the City Administrator at
