At a time when municipal government had become increasingly more complex, the position of village administrator was created in order to provide the Village of Richfield with a more efficient, economical, effective, coordinated, responsible, and responsive municipal government under a system of a part-time Village President and part-time Trustees.
The village administrator is not a statutorily created position. It was created by the Village of Richfield under its home rule authority. To further consolidate the municipal services and create efficiency measures, the offices of the clerk, treasurer, and chief of police were combined with the Office of Village Administrator for the Village of Richfield.
The village administrator shall carry out the directive of the village president and Village Board of Trustees, but also manage the day-to-day operations of the village government. This is including, but not limited to, the monitoring of Village compliance with Wisconsin State Statutes, regulations, village resolutions and ordinances, as well as the general oversight of all Village Staff.
