Message from City Manager Steve Hall

City Manager Steve HallEach day, I'm energized by the caring, creative and dedicated City employees and citizens who make great things happen in Olympia.

As City Manager, it's my responsibility to turn the Council's policy guidance into action. To do so, my vision is of an Olympia organization that is:

  • Responsive - finding one way to say "yes" instead of three ways to say "no;"
  • Flexible and Creative - trying something, learning from it, and moving forward;
  • Helping the community help itself;
  • A Fun place to work!

In my opinion, Olympia City employees exceed my expectations every day!

It's my sincere pleasure to serve the Olympia community. By working together, we will continue to make great things happen in Olympia.
