Administration

Using directives from the Board of County Commissioners, the County Manager administers County policies and supervises the various department heads and their operations on a day-to-day basis. The Manager’s responsibilities include anything from the hiring and dismissal of employees, to conflict resolution, budget preparation or the review of important contract negotiations.

Located on the second floor of the new County Government Complex, in Suite 2500, the County Manager is the contact point for any citizen wishing to comment or make a suggestion in regard to the operation of a County service.

It is always best to first speak with an individual department head in regard to service operations, to gain specific information. Be sure and read the Manager’s Message.


Sam Yearick, County Manager
