Dirk Brazil was hired as City manger in 2014.  Former CM, John Meyer, conducted an organizational review  and filed this report http://city-managers-office.cityofdavis.org/Media/CityManagersOffice/Documents/PDF/CMO/Press-Releases/City-of-Davis-Meyer-Report-Final.pdf April 27, 2015.

The University of California, Davis is not incorporated into the City of Davis, which means that Freshmen and those who live in On-Campus Housing are not eligible to vote in city elections. There is often conflict between the City and the University about the direction of Davis, especially in terms of the growth rate. However, the City must adjust as the University continues to expand in the coming years.

The city is a part of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments.
