Would the Board of Commissions benefit by having a County Manager?
- Those elected can spend more of their valuable time focusing on policy issues, community goals, and major projects rather than on administrative details.
- An elected official sets policy. An manager takes those policies and administers them in a coherent, logical way.
- Those elected can get better and more comprehensive information and analysis from the manager who is in a staff role enabling more informed decisions.
- The changing role of the board may encourage more people to run for elected office.
- The manager can provide continuity when new persons are elected.
