Our Dedicated Leadership Team

Lake and Peninsula Borough uses a council-manager form of government. This means the Assembly functions like a board of directors in a corporation. They establish policy, pass ordinances and develop the overall vision. The Assembly hires a professional manager to oversee the administrative operations, implement the policies and to advise the Assembly. This position is like a CEO. In this form of government, the mayor does not have any more power than any other Assembly member, but does have leadership responsibilities similar to a non-executive chairman in a corporation.
