As noted, BLS characterizes city managers as top executives, which also includes roles like general managers, superintendents and chief executive officers. For this reason, the annual salary for a city manager in your area may vary from what BLS reports. Keep in mind that city managers overseeing larger cities often make more than those in smaller municipalities. For a more accurate salary range, look at the salaries of city managers or at job postings in your area.
According to BLS, the salary range for top executives was between $60,300 and $208,000 a year in May 2021, with $104,730 as the median salary in the government section. Once again, remember that the size of the municipality and the level of experience and education of the city manager can affect salary.
