To create a more responsive, efficient and effective County government, the Commissioners appointed a County Administrator in November 2021. The Administrator has the authority and responsibility to perform the full range of managerial oversite over all departments under the administrative control of the Commissioners except for the Public Health Department on Board of Health issues. The Administrator reviews, analyzes and makes recommendations to the Commissioners on the annual budget and budget amendments based on budget guidelines and priorities established by the Commissioners. The Administrator is responsible for following through on Commissioner direction for public roads and public works programs, public health services, building and planning of unincorporated areas, county park and trails systems, emergency management, county facilities and other services and programs which are not clearly the responsibility of another elected county official.
