Palm Beach County is governed by seven elected commissioners and an appointed county administrator. The administrator has executive powers to implement the policies and procedures set forth by the Board of County Commissioners.

The county administrator manages an annual budget of approximately $4 billion and oversees some 6,100 county employees in more than 30 departments, divisions and offices. Together, they must work in concert to provide quality services, programs and information to Palm Beach County’s 1.32 million residents.

Supervising the day-to-day workings of one of the fastest growing and geographically largest counties in the nation is extremely challenging. That duty has been entrusted to Robert Weisman, who was appointed by the Board of County Commissioners in December 1991.

From 1988 to 1991, Mr. Weisman served as an assistant county administrator and from 1985 to 1988 was director of the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department. He began his career with the county in 1980 as an engineer with the Land Development Division of the Engineering and Public Works Department.

Under Mr. Weisman's guidance, Palm Beach County has enjoyed managerial and financial stability and continues to maintain its AAA bond rating from Fitch Ratings, Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investors Service, the highest bond rating available. In 1995, the Voters Coalition of Palm Beach County named Mr. Weisman its Man of the Year.

Professionally, Mr. Weisman is an engineer, earning a bachelor degree in civil engineering in 1973 from The Cooper Union in New York City.
