Allegheny County Government


On May 19, 1998, the residents of Allegheny County voted to enact a Home Rule Charter for the county to take effect in 2000. The new government abolished the three-commissioner system in favor of an elected county executive, a 15 member county council (13 elected by district, 2 at-large) and an appointed County Manager. The new system maintains the general duties of county government while separating legislative and executive functions and transferring substantial authority over our government from the Commonwealth to the citizens of Allegheny County through the process of initiative and referendum.
