City Manager

On behalf of the City of Silverton, I want to extend a warm welcome to our residents and visitors.

Silverton is a community with 9,590 residents with a rich history and a bright future. It is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, surrounded by spectacular natural wonders and scenery. It is the gateway to Silver Falls and home to the Oregon Garden. In 2015, Silverton was named the 3rd Safest City in Oregon and was designated as one of the ten most beautiful towns on the West Coast by The Culture Trip, the biggest culture website in the world.

The City Manager’s office is responsible to carry out the policies and programs approved by the City Council and to provide administrative leadership to the 50 employees of the City of Silverton.

Bob Willoughby was appointed City Manager effective January 3, 2012. Bob has extensive experience in local government and was formerly the City Manager in Florence, Oregon. Prior to that he owned and operated a small business and practiced law in Oregon.

Bob is very passionate about public service, and believes Silverton citizens are our greatest resources. In 2015 the City completed Envision Silverton 2035, a 20-year community driven plan for the City’s future. As an organization, we pride ourselves in being responsive, transparent and strive to be business friendly.

If you have questions or suggestions about visiting, living or working in Silverton, we look forward to hearing from you.

To request public information, please complete a Public Request Form and turn it in to the City Clerk.
