City Manager’s Office

Our commitment is to provide our residents, businesses and visitors with a great place in which to live, work and visit is evidenced by our Vision, Mission and Critical Success Factors, while being fiscally conservative.
The City Manager’s office coordinates City government activities; receives and responds to citizens concerns, inquiries and and requests; monitors capital investment projects; provides administrative support to City Council and Council Committees; coordinates legal work through the city solicitor. The City Manager’s office is also responsible for coordinating, preparing and publishing the City’s Capital Investment Plan and the annual budget.

We are proud of our small town with big city ammenities. The City of Dover is located in central Delaware in Kent County and is the capital of Delaware – approximately 90 miles south of Philadelphia, PA and 90 miles east of Washington DC. While our population is a little over half of that of Wilmington, DE, Dover encompasses a larger area than any other city on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Dover is home to the Dover Air Force Base. Home to the C-5 Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, the Eagle Wing flies hundreds of missions throughout the world and provides 25 percent of the Nation's strategic airlift capability, projecting global reach to over 100 countries around the globe. Dover AFB operates the largest and busiest air freight terminal in the Department of Defense and is also home to the Air Mobility Command Museum, which welcomes thousands of visitors each year. The Charles C. Carson Center for Mortuary Affairs is the Department of Defense’s largest joint-service mortuary facility and the only one located in the continental United States.

Dover is also proud to be home to the Dover International Speedway, the Dover Mall and numerous specialty stores located in our downtown. Dover is also home to many historic buildings, museums, parks and the John W. Pitts Recreation Center.

Our office is equipped with caring, dedicated staff. It is important to us that you feel as though your questions are being answered, you are being understood and that you take as much pride in Dover as we do. We are located inside City Hill at 15 Loockerman Plaza (next to the library).
