Wayne County Charter Issues … County Administrative Organization
Once the office of county executive or administrator has been provided for, a second major task which will confront the Wayne County Charter Commission will be the development of an overall plan of organization for the entire executive branch of county government. Since Wayne now utilizes the traditional commission form, the county government presently contains a broad array of offices, departments, boards, commissions and related agencies, performing a wide variety of functions and in many instances enjoying substantial autonomy. It will be the responsibility of the charter commission to systematize and reorganize these many units into a coherent whole. Since the great majority of the units found in a reorganized executive arm will report to the top officer of the county, the new structure in general will be built around that office.
