F.S. 125.71
125.71 Purpose.It is the legislative intent that it is necessary to authorize a form of county administration that best assures an adequate and efficient provision of services to the citizens in this state, that provides for coordinated administration of county departments to better protect the health, welfare, safety, and quality of life of the residents in each of the more urbanized counties, and that places in the hands of a county administrator the multitude of details which must necessarily arise from the operation of a county as a unit of local government and, thus, enables the board of county commissioners to perform freely, without unnecessary interruption, its fundamental intended purpose of making policies within the framework of law applicable to county government in this state. It is the further legislative intent to provide a formula and structure for the economic and efficient conduct of county affairs by making the county administrator established by this act responsible for handling of all things necessary to accomplish and bring to fruition the policies established by the board of county commissioners.
