The Public Administrator office is an elected office for a four year term. The Public Administrator must attend a twenty hour training session each year.

The Public Administrator serves as a guardian and/or conservator for wards that are determined by the Probate Court to be incapacitated and/or disabled.

As guardian of the person, you are responsible for your protectee’s care, treatment, habilitation, support, and maintenance. An incapacitated person is any person who is unable to provide themselves with food, clothing, healthcare, or safety.

As conservator, you are responsible for taking possession of all of the protectee’s real and personal property, rents, income and profits from property, and proceeds from the sale, mortgage, or lease of property. These are referred to as the protectee’s estate.

The Public Administrator may also serve as Personal Representative of an estate, if appointed by the Court.
