As with most California cities, the City of Indio’s municipal government operates under the City Council-Manager form of government. The City Council appoints and supervises a City Manager, who serves as the full-time Chief Executive Officer of the City and Executive Director of the Indio Water Authority. The City Manager serves as policy and financial advisor to the City Council, prepares the annual budget and implements Council goals and objectives. His primary responsibility is to oversee the day-to-day operations of the City by working closely with the City’s Executive Team in provision of services relating to public safety, community development, public works and utilities, parks and trails, economic development and support services.
