The Director of County Operations is the administrative head of the county. The Director is appointed by, reports to, and serves at the direction of the three-member Board of County Commissioners. The Director is responsible for supervising all personnel and activities coming under the jurisdiction of the Commissioners. This includes budgeting and finance management, staff direction and oversight, strategic planning, building management, and engineering as well as oversight of a recreational facility and external governmental and media relations.
The Director provides a leadership role in administering all affairs of the County and providing professional advice to the Commissioners and member communities. The Director dedicates considerable time toward communicating with state elected and appointed officials regarding County programs and needs. This, in addition to financial management and budgeting, is a critical aspect of the Director’s role.
