The office of the county manager exists for the purpose of bringing alignment of effort and continuity to the affairs of Torrance County government. Open communication with the public and with local, state, and Federal agencies is essential to our success.
The County Manager is appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to implement Board decisions. The County Manager operates directly under the Board of County Commissioners, serving the legislative function of the Board by providing research, information, and recommendations, and serving the executive function of the Board by providing management assistance.
The County Manager's Office is responsible for monitoring and administering the county budget which includes an individual departmental review of proposed, and then throughout the fiscal year, ongoing expenditures. In addition, the office is responsible for providing the Board with the information they need for making decisions, representing the County in intergovernmental relationships, coordinating the work of all County departments, resolving interdepartmental problems, and coordinating the overall administration of County government.
We are committed to instilling through action and demonstrating by example, a feeling of pride in the performance of our duties and a willingness to serve the public, our "customers." We are dedicated to supporting our elected and appointed officials in meeting the needs of the public, enabling the organization to deliver the greatest level of quality programs and services while controlling the financial burden to our residents.
