The County Administrator position was originally established by enactment of the County Board dated July 17, 1974 with the title of "Administrative Aide." In establishing the position, the County Board affirmed its belief that "the functions of County Government entrusted to the Board under law can be performed more economically and efficiently and with a maximum of service to the public and various County divisions through a County Administrator appointed by the County Board". The County Administrator, under the supervision of the County Board Chairperson, directs the day-to-day operation of County facilities, programs and personnel and provides staff support to the County Board in policy-making.


As the Chief Administrative Officer of the County, the County Administrator serves at the pleasure of the County Board.
