The Public Administrator is elected to four-year terms. The position is responsible for probating estates for those who have not made prior arrangements appointing someone to finalize their affairs. The Court must appoint the Administrator to any estate requiring probate services. Those services can be as simple as authorizing cremation or locating family but more often, the Administrator handles issues that are more complex such as selling all real and personal property, cleaning out the home, managing all financial matters including filing tax returns, filing reports with the Courts.

The County contracts with a law firm to represent the Public Administrator.
