There is created an Office of County Administrator for Green Lake County with all duties and powers set forth under § 59.18, Wis. Stats.

The County Administrator shall be appointed by the County Board of Supervisors by a majority vote and shall report to the Administrative Committee.
The County Administrator may be removed by the County Board as provided in §§ 59.18 and 17.10(2), Wis. Stats.
All references in the Green Lake County Code, the Personnel Policies and Procedures Manual and the Administrative Policy Manual to "Administrative Coordinator" hereinafter shall mean the "County Administrator" position.
The County Board's right to elect and appoint its own officers and committees as set forth in § 59.12 Wis. Stats., is codified in Chapter 2 of the Green Lake County Code and is reaffirmed.

The County Administrator is accountable to the County Board for the administration of its policies and programs, and for his or her conduct as a responsible public official.
No provision of this chapter is intended to vest in the County Administrator any duty, or grant the County Administrator any authority, which is vested in law in any other County officer, employee, commission, committee, or board. In the absence of specific authority vested by statute, ordinance or resolution with the County Administrator, policy direction shall be solicited from the County Board.
The County Administrator shall review and sign all contracts for goods and services after review by the Corporation Counsel, unless the contract requires the signature of the County Board Chair and County Clerk.
