Brad Miyake, City Manager
Bellevue operates under a council-manager form of government in which city council members are elected by residents of the community to represent their interests. The council selects a city manager to oversee all city operations.
Brad Miyake was appointed city manager in April 2014, nearly a year after he was appointed to serve in an acting capacity. In addition to overseeing city operations through departments, the city manager directly supervises communications, performance measurement, intergovernmental relations and volunteer coordination for the city.
