Sør-Trøndelag County Municipality (Norwegian: Sør-Trøndelag fylkeskommune) was the regional governing administration of the old Sør-Trøndelag county in Norway until 1 January 2018 when it merged with Nord-Trøndelag county to form the new Trøndelag county. The main responsibilities of the county municipality included the running of 25 upper secondary schools. It administered the county roadways, public transport, dental care, culture, and cultural heritage.

County government[edit]

The Sør-Trøndelag county council (Norwegian: Fylkestinget) is made up of 37 representatives that were elected every four years. The council essentially acted as a Parliament or legislative body for the county and it met several times each year. The council is divided into standing committees and an executive board (fylkesutvalg) which meet considerably more often. Both the council and executive board are led by the County Mayor (fylkesordfører) who held the executive powers of the county. Prior to its dissolution, the county mayor was Tore O. Sandvik (Labour) while his deputy was Arne Braut (Centre Party).
