The Board of County Commissioners is the general administrative body for county government and is responsible for making decisions to make the county a better place to live and work.
Individual commissioners have no power to act independently. All formal and official actions taken by the Board of County Commissioners must be by majority or unanimous vote in a public meeting. Commissioners also appoint department heads of offices for which they have responsibility. They appoint members to a variety of boards and commissions. Additionally, individual commissioners serve on other boards that serve the interest of county citizens. Learn more about the commission's representation on county boards and departments.
Fiscal Year & Budget
The county’s fiscal year is July 1 to June 30 of each year. Each summer the commissioners set the budget for the coming fiscal year. A series of work sessions are held from May through June for the budget discussion and consideration. Commissioners must work with all other county elected officials and with judges to assure that all offices of county government are properly funded to perform statutory duties.
