Chief Administrative Office


Section 5.07 of the Shreveport City Charter provides for a chief administrative officer (CAO) to oversee the day to day operations of the City of Shreveport and its various departments. The CAO and his/her staff work closely with the Office of the Mayor to ensure that the mayor’s goals are reflected in the daily operations of the various departments.

Along with general oversight responsibilities, this office coordinates citizen inquiries and complaints, budget preparation and submission to the City Council, along with coordination of legislative matters being sent to the City Council for consideration and action.
