Summary

Lake County is seeking a knowledgeable, dynamic and confident management professional with experience directing operations in a Florida government entity. The applicant must have extensive knowledge of municipal operations, including budget development and statutory requirements impacting local government administration. The successful candidate will be a self-starter who is committed to following the direction of the Board of County Commissioners in sustaining the County’s conservative financial direction in a challenging budgetary climate.

The Community
Lake County is a mix of urban and rural areas, with significant natural resources, including 1,000 freshwater lakes and rivers. The 1,157-square-mile county also includes historic downtowns and award-winning sports facilities, all within a short driving distance of downtown Orlando, the Central Florida theme parks, coastal beaches and the Orlando International Airport.

A booming population led to a surge of new housing construction in the mid-2000s, and Lake County now has more than 350,000 residents. Tourism continues to be an important part of the county’s economy, and visitors flock to antique shopping areas and cruise on the lakes and rivers. Sports enthusiasts enjoy high quality facilities across the county, such as the Hickory Point Beach Volleyball Complex and Clermont’s National Training Center, and cycle on the hundreds of miles of trails through the county that connect to the Coast to Coast Trail and Orange County’s network of trails.

For all these reasons, Lake County is a different kind of community. County government is working hand in hand with businesses, civic groups, organizations and municipal leaders to make positive changes in the quality of life for the residents of Lake County. The County’s priorities include public safety, a strong economic development program, and fostering a business-friendly environment. Together, the leaders of the community and its residents are continuously striving to make Lake County a wonderful place to live, work and play.

The Position
The County Manager is responsible for the professional management and oversight of approximately 1,000 employees and an annual budget of more than $450 million. This includes overseeing all programs and activities under the direction of the Board of County Commissioners. The County Manager executes appropriate policies and procedures concerning matters applicable to the Board, and coordinates and conducts long-range management and financial planning analyses.

Lake County is a non-charter County with five elected County Commissioners. The County Manager is an appointed position, serving at the pleasure of the Board.

Minimum Qualifications
The qualified candidate will have a bachelor’s degree in public administration, business, or a related field and seven years of related progressively responsible experience in Florida, including at least three years of experience at the level of Department Director or above at a similarly sized operation.

The starting salary is negotiable. The current salary of the County Manager is $187,283. The County offers excellent benefits including comprehensive health insurance (choice of HMO or PPO for medical and dental), vision care, County-paid life insurance and additional supplemental life insurance options, ten (10) paid holidays, two (2) personal days, accrued sick and vacation benefits, a choice of deferred compensation programs and participation in the Florida Retirement System (FRS) and additional benefits as negotiated in the employment agreement.
