County Offices Closed - Mon., May 29

County Offices will be closed on Mon., May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.

Boards of county commissioners serve as both administrative and policy-making bodies for their counties. While, generally, boards have only those powers specifically conferred by the state General Assembly, courts have held that they have such implied powers as may be necessary to carry out their specified powers. Constitutionally, the board also sits as the county board of equalization. The board also fills all vacancies in county offices other than those for county commissioner and for public trustee. All powers of the county, as a legal entity, are exercised by the board of county commissioners and not by its individual members.

Public hearings for the Board of County Commissioners are held every Monday at 1:30 p.m in room 107. Work sessions are held every Monday upon adjournment of the public hearing in commissioner's room 212.

All public hearings, work sessions and commissioner meetings are open to the public unless the Board of County Commissioners is in executive session.
