The Office advises members of the Board of Supervisors, recommends policies and sets priorities for the consideration by the Board of Supervisors concerning the provision of programs and serves that provide the highest quality of life to County citizens.
The County Administrator ensures compliance with federal, state and local laws and ordinances as well as maintaining open communication with various sectors of the community such as the legislative delegation, business community, area governments and County residents.
