County Administrator Bertha Henry

Broward County Government

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, which was established in 1975.

As a regional provider of programs and services to its residents and visitors, Broward County employs more than 5,200 employees in 50 different agencies in the areas of transportation, human services, planning and recreation. Broward County's regional services include one of the nation's fastest growing airports, a bustling international seaport, an award-winning library system, an ever-growing transit network, an expanding park system and a variety of community services.

While the diversity of Broward's population of 1.7 million creates unique challenges in delivering services and providing information, that diversity also contributes to a dynamic cultural environment that makes Broward County one of the most interesting and robust places in the world to live and work.
