City Manager

Located on the third floor of City Hall, this department consists of the City Manager, a Deputy City Manager and a Confidential Assistant. This Department is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the City within the parameters of the Cape May City Government. All departments report into this office.

The City Manager is responsible for executing the many varied tasks required to meet the unique and changing needs in the governing of the City of Cape May, a National Historic Landmark City, and the Nation’s Oldest Seashore Resort. Some of these functions include but are not limited to, the daily handling of correspondence, telephone inquiries, and office visits by the public, as well as the employees of the City of Cape May. This office is also responsible for the oversight of all City projects. 

In addition, the City’s Personnel Department is housed here and is another important facet of the Department of Administration. The City participates with the New Jersey Department of Personnel in a coordinated effort to successfully execute personnel policies and procedures. All employment opportunities are reviewed and approved by this department, and all personnel-related forms are executed by the Manager.
