St. Lucie County is governed by five elected Commissioners and an appointed County Administrator.  The Board of County Commissioners has entrusted the position of County Administrator to Faye Outlaw.  Ms. Outlaw supervises the day-to-day workings of the County, manages the annual budget and oversees the County’s operating departments and divisions. 

Ms. Outlaw was appointed County Administrator by the Board of County Commissioners in January 2009.  From 2004 to 2009, she served as an Assistant County Administrator. 

Under Ms. Outlaw’s guidance, the County has undergone a major overhaul and restructuring of its operations.  This entailed a restructuring of its prior 18 operating departments and 45 operating divisions.  The new organizational structure consists of nine operating departments and 27 operating divisions which function as a more efficient and cohesive governmental entity.

Additionally, the County has enhanced the level of public-private partnerships to maintain several core programs and services.  From library services, arts and cultural programming, regional history center operations to artificial reefs deployments and controlled burns, dedicated members of our community are working in partnership with the County to continue the provision of these as well as other vital services to our residents, stakeholders and visitors.

We are glad you have taken the time to visit our website and invite you to explore the many assets and resources that make St. Lucie County a great business, social and family community.
