The County Administrator is the chief executive officer of Broward County Government and directs the day-to-day functions of County government under the auspices of the Broward County Board of County Commissioners.
The nine-member elected Board of County Commissioners is the legislative branch of Broward County Government. A separation between the legislative and administrative functions of County Government is provided for in the Broward County Charter, established in 1975.
