Council Manager Form of Government 
The City of Grosse Pointe Park operates under the council-manager form of government. This system of government was designed to remove politics from municipal administration and is one of two main variations of representative municipal government in the United States.

Grosse Pointe Park’s government is comprised of a city council and an appointed city manager. The seven officials elected to serve on the Grosse Pointe Park City Council are the policy-making and legislative body for the City government. Six council members are elected at large for four overlapping years; the Mayor is elected at large for two years.

The city manager is appointed by the Grosse Pointe park City Council and is responsible for the day-to-day operations and the City’s annual budget. In addition, key responsibilities include coordination and development of services and programs, supervision of all City departments and implementation of City Council's strategic policy decisions.
