Form of Government
The City of DeLand operates under a “council-manager” form of government, which is the most common form of city government in Florida today.  The prevailing norms in the council-manager form are administrative competency and efficiency.  Under the council-manager form, the city manager is the chief administrative officer of the city.  The manager supervises and coordinates the departments, appoints and removes their directors, prepares the budget for the council’s consideration, and makes reports and recommendations to the council.  All department heads, with the exception of the city attorney and the city clerk, report to the city manager.  The manager is fully responsible for municipal administration.  The mayor in a council-manager form is the ceremonial head of the municipality.  The mayor and the city commissioners are elected by the voters of the city.
