Julie Underwood, City Manager
Mercer Island operates under a council-manager form of government, in which City Councilmembers are elected by residents to set policy and give direction to the City. 

The Council selects a City Manager to implement policy and oversee all city operations, according to the City's mission and core values.

The City Manager is responsible for the preparation of the City’s annual budget, enforcement and implementation of all laws, policies and services of the City. Directing the allocation and organization of the City’s resources, the City Manager oversees the development and implementation of all policy and program initiatives, including the City Council’s top legislative priorities.

City Manager Julie Underwood was appointed in 2017.

The City Manager's Office oversees intergovernmental relations, City Clerk, communications, and sustainability. 

​The City of Mercer Island employs approximately 200 people, driven by core values of high ethical standards, outstanding customer service, teamwork, and leadership development. 

We routinely challenge ourselves to improve our operations and do the best job possible with the resources available.​
