Layne Long is the city manager for the City of Marina.

As the top appointed official in the city, the city manager is typically responsible for most if not all of the day-to-day administrative operations of the municipality, in addition to other duties.

Some of the basic roles and responsibilities of a city manager include:

Supervision of day-to-day operations of all city departments and staff, directly and through department heads;

Preparation, monitoring, and execution of the city budget, which includes submitting each year to the council a proposed budget package with options and recommendations for its consideration and possible approval;

Main technical advisor to the council on overall governmental operations;

Public relations, such as meeting with citizens, citizen groups, businesses, and other stakeholders;

Operating the city with a professional understanding of how all city functions operate together to their best effect;

Attends all council meetings, but does not have any voting rights;

In the early years of the profession, most managers came from the ranks of the engineering professions. Today the typical and preferred background and education for the beginning municipal manager is a master's degree in Public Administration (MPA) and at least several years’ experience as a department head in local government or as an assistant city manager. As of 2005 more than 60% of those in the profession had a MPA, MBA, or other related higher-level degree.
