City Manager

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will find it a helpful means of being informed about our community and all we have to offer and that you return often to obtain information about City meetings, activities, programs, and services. If you are a current resident of Union City, this website and its links to other sites are designed to assist you to be better informed about your city government. It is part of the ongoing effort made by the Mayor and City Council in furthering open government and informing residents and visitors about our wonderful community.

The Office of City Manager serves as the focal point for executive leadership. The office works closely with the Mayor and Council to ensure that City programs and operations reflect policy goals and objectives established by the governing body.


Union City has a rich history and a reputation for achieving a good balance of beautiful and peaceful neighborhoods, quality economic development, and superior public services. As a community, we appreciate our past, value our traditions and are poised for the future. This philosophy is the foundation of decisions made by the City Council and City staff.

It is my desire as City Manager to serve the community and to support the City’s vision for
• A clean and inviting community
• The infrastructure to sustain growth
• Increased community amenities and activities
• Vital public safety
• Capital projects illustrating development
• A strategy that effectively markets our community
• Planned growth while maintaining a rich historical integrity and community character.

Every day we allocate resources to ensure fiscal stability and a high quality of life that includes not only basic municipal services – such as public safety and the maintenance of streets and sidewalks – but also the provision of high quality recreation and athletic programs for residents.

Please know that the City Staff is here to work with you to preserve our environment of excellence. Employees strive to provide you with the best customer service and to be accessible, responsive, responsible and creative in meeting the needs of the community. Whether you live here or are just visiting, continue to visit our web site and always remember……….THIS IS YOUR UNION CITY.
