City Manager Search

The City of Lexington is working with the Berkley Group to find Lexington's next City Manager. Following a community forum on July 11, 2019, a City Council work session with representatives from the Berkley Group was held on July 18, 2019. City Council members were provided with the citizen comments from the forum and provided their input in order to create a recruitment profile (minutes from that work session can be found here). On August 7, 2019 the recruitment profile was released after being reviewed by City Council. Stay tuned for updates as we move through this process!
