Current and Long-Range Operational Plans

The County Manager is responsible for implementing policies set by the Board of County Commissioners, recommends improved management practices, and directs county operating divisions. The County Manager and his staff prepare current and long-range operational plans; review all existing and future planning systems, personnel, records retention, equipment, and facility requirements; and recommend procedures and standards for sound, effective county management. The County Manager also coordinates and maintains relations with other jurisdictions and agencies.


County Manager reports are available on Business Meeting agendas and can be viewed by visiting douglascountyco.iqm2.com/citizens/default.aspx? and selecting Board of County Commissioners from the Meeting Group (top left hand), and then selecting a Business Meeting from the calendar.  County Manager Reports are towards the end of the Business Meeting Agenda.
