City Business Manager
Welcome to the City of Alva’s website. We are pleased to utilize the latest technology to provide information about your city's local government operations.
The City of Alva has an Aldermanic form of government in which the elected Mayor and City Council members establish policy. Those policies are then implemented by the City Business Manager who is appointed by, and reports to, the City Council.
The City Business Manager operates much in the same way that a Chief Executive Officer of a corporation does. The City Business Manager's Office is responsible for the day-to-day administration of Alva’s city government, including managing the city's budget, the city's departments and operations, and programs for communicating with residents and employees.
The following statement of values reflects what we believe in and the reasons we exist:
- Our vision is to provide the highest quality of public service and foster a positive quality of life for our citizens.
- Our mission is to inspire integrity, pride, trust and respect from our organization as we encourage citizens involvement and creativity as a source of new ideas to continuously improve services.
The City Business Manager's Office encourages and oversees the efforts of all city departments to promote your participation in your local government. The City Business Manager's Office, along with all other city departments, strives to provide you with information about city projects, considerations before City Council, and other issues that impact you.
Information available from the City Business Manager's Office includes copies of:
- City Council meeting dates, agendas, and minutes
- City Council ward maps
- City ordinances
- Membership lists of official city boards, trusts, and committees
- City Budget
The City Business Manager can be reached directly at Alva City Hall 415 4th Street, by phone (580) 327-1340 or by email.
