The concept of city management is perceived differently according to the background and experience of the observer. One common element however, is the importance of the political arena in the management of chilies. Beyond this common element, interpretations of city management vary considerably To some the concept is seen as public management. To’ others, it means growth management, organization management and so on. However, the key concern is coordination.

Question 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 are based on the following reading.

Cities are managed by elected politicians and appointed officials or professionals. Often, there are basic contradictions between legitimate interests of the two groups. Because politicians are responsible to the electorate, they must have the means to carry out the policies they have promised to pursue. In particular, they must be able to hire and trust professionals who will implement there policies and to terminate them if need be. Professionals who work in municipal administration, on the other hand must enjoy a certain degree of independence as will as a large degree of tenure security. Otherwise, municipal administration will never be able to attract people with high caliber. There is no simple set of rules to solve this contradiction. More so the roles of professionals in city management vary from country to country.
