Board of Commissioners

The Board of County Commissioners is comprised of five members elected through district elections for staggered, four-year terms.

The five-member Board elects the Chair and Vice-Chair of the County Commission each year. For 2021, the Chair is District 4 Commissioner, Gary Blount and the Vice-Chair is District 5 Commissioner, Ben Casey.

The Board of Commissioners makes policies, adopts laws, sets budget limits, sets tax rates, etc. The Board appoints a County Administrator who is chosen by and responsible to the Board of County Commissioners. The County Administrator oversees the day-to-day operations of the County, advises the Board, and implements Commission policy.
