How NY Counties Are Organized
New York State's 57 counties outside the City of New York have generally adopted one of three methods of county organization:
  • Charter counties with an elected executive or appointed administrative official,
  • Counties with an appointed manager or administrator organized under county law, and
  • Those operating under the administrative direction of an elected legislative body 
 
Of these types, the break down across New York counties as follows:
  • County Charters—23 counties: 18 currently with county executives elected in countywide general elections and five with appointed administrators or managers. 
  • Appointed Manager/Administrator—22 counties have administrators and 10 have managers.
  • Legislative Body—8 counties provide oversight and administration through their board chair and/or committees that that have jurisdiction over specific departments.
