Does the city manager replace the mayor?
No, the role of the mayor and the role of the city manager are different. The mayor is the chief elected official of the city and oversees City Council meetings and provides direction and guidance for policy decisions of the city. The mayor’s position is not full time.

The city manager is a full-time employee of the city, responsible for the daily operations of the city for providing the mayor and City Council with information they need to make decisions for the city.
