Welcome to the Ralls County Public Administrator’s page.


The Public Administrator is a County elected official for a term of four years. 


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, I am responsible for your protectee’s care, treatment, rehabilitation, support, and maintenance. An incapacitated person is any person who is unable to provide for their own food, clothing, healthcare, or safety.


As conservator, I am responsible for taking possession of all 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.


I also may serve as Personal Representative of an estate, if appointed by the Ralls County Probate Court.
