Assistant City Manager

Do you want to work in a historic city with a cool urban vibe that rejects the cookie-cutter, strip-mall mentality? If so, come join our team!

With over 40,000 people and 200 years of heritage, Covington offers small-city charm and big-city benefits – sitting just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati but boasting a more laid-back way of life. Some two dozen neighborhoods boast their own character, its population is diverse on a number of levels, and its downtown offers an eclectic array of authentic restaurants, bars, event centers and small business.

Covington enjoys an extremely engaged business and neighborhood community and that is why it is important that we have an Assistant City Manager who understands the impact of policies on a local government and who can undertake public policy analysis that will be used by the City Commission and the City Manager.

This position will serve as an advocate of the City’s positions on issues in the State Legislature, regional governmental boards/associations as well as developing relationships with other municipalities and other local government agencies. Will also monitor and analyze policy changes within the City government.

Additional duties include assisting in collective bargaining negotiations and special projects.
