Government

Brevard County residents live in 16 municipalities, each of which has its own governing body, and in unincorporated areas governed directly by the county.

The county is governed by elected commissioners from five geographical districts who establish ordinances and set policies, and are administered by a county manager, Stockton Whitten.
