Biography / Administrative History

Sacramento County was chartered by the California State Legislature on Feb. 18, 1850 as one of ten chartered counties. Its role was to carry out three major state programs: public assistance, public protection, and road construction and maintenance. The Charter of 1933 gave the county "home-rule" status, granting it a greater role in planning, municipal service, and coordinating functions of urbanized areas.
The county is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors, elected from districts of equal population for four years. Duties and responsibilities include: to enact regulatory ordinances and resolutions, to determine county policies, to approve all formal contracts and agreements, to adopt an annual budget, to set tax rates, to approve personnel salaries, to approve all zoning matters, and to appoint various county officials. The Board relies on an appointed County Executive to administer the county.
