Policies

A policy is a directive intended to achieve or reinforce compliance with established mandates. Used to provide clear guidance to the workforce to ensure compliance with a mandate that exists in county code, state law or other legal authority. Note that all policies published after December 1, 2020 are provided in PDF format only.

Executive Policies (EP) are approved by the County Executive, for broad purposes and intended to achieve or reinforce compliance with established mandates. Used by the Executive Branch to provide clear guidance to the workforce to ensure compliance with a mandate that exists in county code, state law or other legal authority.

Department Policies (DP) are approved by the director of a department (or individual agency) that have applicability and consequences that are limited to a single department or agency of the Executive Branch.
