Overview of the County Administrator's OfficeOverview

The County Administrator operates under the direction of the Yuba County Board of Supervisors, providing administrative support and implementing its directives with regard to Board agendas, meetings, resolutions, policies, legislative decisions, and constituent services.
The County Administrator is also responsible for day-to-day operations of county departments, which includes providing management assistance.

Budget IconBudgets
Each year the County Administrator's Office works with all County departments to prepare the recommended County budget, a document that is used as a planning tool to provide the Board of Supervisors with information needed to assist them in policy and public service decision-making. The budget process involves multiple planning sessions, developing budget instructions and coordinating necessary financial information needed by departments. The County Administrator staff then monitors monthly expenditures and revenues, as well as produces quarterly reports and the mid-year budget report.

Another important ongoing responsibility of County Administration staff is to ensure Yuba County has a voice in the process of developing State laws and policies. Staff accomplishes this by working through our state lobbyist, the California State Association of Counties, Regional Council of Rural Counties, Sacramento Area Council of Governments, and others, advising the Board and coordinating support or opposition positions.
