Commission discusses administrator’s duties

September 21, 2007

— Leavenworth County commissioners have laid out a draft job description for the county administrator's position.

The document described the administrator as an appointed official with the "overall responsibility for the effective administration of governmental affairs of the county" that would act "as a liaison between elected county officials and the Board of County Commissioners."

Specific duties for the administrator would include recommending an annual budget, identifying individuals for appointment (who then could be officially appointed by the board), coordinating the administrative operations of all departments, supervising personnel, executing contracts and other documents and composing a policies and procedures manual for the board.
