County Council


County Chair
Jason P. Davis

Under Volusia County’s Council/Manager form of government, voters elect a County Council that consists of seven members who serve four-year terms. Five are elected by district; the county chair and the at-large representative are elected countywide.

The County Council makes broad policy decisions much like the board of directors of a major corporation. It also reviews and approves the annual budget and passes ordinances as necessary.

The County Council appoints a county manager who is the county’s chief executive officer and oversees the county’s day-to-day operations.

Mission: To nourish good citizenship by promoting democratic values and earning public trust; to respond effectively to citizens' needs for health, safety and general welfare; to allocate limited public resources fairly and efficiently; to provide leadership and high quality service by consistently communicating with the citizens about their needs and aspirations
