The Chief Administrative Officer is responsible to the Mayor and Council for the administration of the many businesses that comprise the municipal corporation. City Council sets the overall direction for the corporation and establishes policies, and it is the responsibility of the municipal staff under the CAO's leadership to implement Council's decisions and to run the day-to-day activities of the corporation. Council may also look to the CAO for input and advice before coming to a final decision on issues.  In addition to the Chief Financial Officer, there are nine department heads that report directly to the Chief Administrative Officer.
