City Manager

Welcome to the City of Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Our community is in the midst of changes in many areas, due to the economic times, but this community has not and will never give up or quit in the face of adversity.  Changes in business due to losses in the workforce in our region have impacted not only Fort Dodge, but all of the State of Iowa.  Our community is not lying down during this change.  This change also has a positive side, with the positive outlook for the near and distant future, and the ongoing improvements to infrastructure, community, additions to our retail center and the overall vision of the community.

This vision is also the root of the entire Local Government.  In the last 2 years the Local Government has embraced a LEAN Government initiative to progress thru these times.
The adoption of this initiative is seen in the following mission statement.



Our LEAN Government / Continuous Improvement Vision

We will become the top-ranked municipal government in Iowa by consistently delivering high quality, user-friendly services:

  • Within Budget Constraints
  • To Pleasantly Surprised Citizens
  • By Our Team Of Proud Employees Working In A Great Environment
