- County Administration
Welcome to the York County Administration page! Here you can find a 1-stop shop to key financial/administrative information and explore how county government works.
Much of the basis for each year of activities within County government rests with the annual budget adopted by the Commissioners. The Board is composed of 3 elected officials who serve as the county's primary legislative and administrative body.
Based on projected revenue, the budget determines the amount of money available for county agencies and departments to accomplish their missions.
Most county departments report directly to the Commissioners. However, the row officers and Court of Common Pleas independently manage the day-to-day operations using funding levels outlined in the county's budget.
We hope you will take a few minutes to explore these pages. Our doors are always open to anyone interested in learning more about the organization and accessing the wide variety of services available through county government.
