WHAT MAKES ADDISON A GREAT PLACE TO WORK?
Addison's employees set the Town apart. We value our employees and provide the culture, benefits and compensation to reinforce that daily! After all, we recognize that there are other cities and organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area looking for good people.
THE TOWN IS IN GOOD HANDS
The City Manager is the Chief Executive Officer of Addison and is responsible for managing the diverse departments necessary to keep the Town running smoothly. Imagine what it takes to run a city: everything from water resources to public safety, traffic flow to economic development, and, since it's Addison, lots of entertainment and special events. Quite a responsibility for any CEO! But the City Manager's staff has lots of help. Addison's department heads have a depth of wisdom that only comes with experience. In fact, because Addison is such a great place to work, the entire workforce has a stability rate much higher than most city governments. Longevity can be linked to good management.

COUNCIL-MANAGER FORM OF GOVERNMENT
Addison's charter established the Council-Manager form of government for the Town. In a Council-Manager government, the Council serves as the legislative branch. The Council develops an overall vision for the Town, sets policy, and passes ordinances. The Mayor acts as the presiding officer of the Council and represents the Town at formal functions and ceremonies. The day-to-day administrative duties are carried out by a City Manager appointed by the Council. The City Manager serves at the pleasure of the Council, similar to a CEO of a company. In a Council-Manager government, changes in the way the city operates or in personnel require cooperative action by council members, the mayor and the City Manager.
Addison has been fortunate to have Ron Whitehead as its City Manager since June 1982. During the past 26 years, Ron and his staff have guided Addison's growth from a small community to a bustling business center. Addison's ongoing climate of success and good will can be attributed to the cooperative nature of its government and to a very stable and committed workforce. Among other things, Addison is known for its low turnover and exceptional longevity of employees.
