Town Administration

Manchester Town government is divided into departments and offices, which provide services to the Town of Manchester, as well as the Village of Manchester with a few exceptions. Town Departments include the Police Department, Fire Department, Parks and Recreation Department, Department of Public Works and the Water and Sewer departments. Offices include the Office of the Town Manager (including the Operations Division), Town Clerk’s Office, Planning and Zoning Office, Emergency Management Office, Assessing Office, Economic Development Office, and Accounting and Finance Office.
